Praise for The Monster Next Door

A Bank Street Best Children’s Books of the Year

“The notes hit are those in the keys of empathy and diplomacy, ably supported by gentle, mixed-media illustrations . . . Listeners should absorb the book’s elegantly executed common sense like a sponge.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Soman charts the highs and lows of a nascent friendship in this quirky, sensitive story . . . that highlights the value of embracing difference and keeping an open mind.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kids will relate to the intense emotions of disagreeing with a friend and the simple act of making up once the anger has passed. Great for read-alouds.”School Library Journal

“Whimsical [and] relatable.” —Minnestota Parent Magazine
