Product Details


Depicted in scribbles and scrabbles and appropriately loud colors, Hodgkinson’s collage monsters look like huge, comical cousins to Ed Emberley’s Big Green anxiety-banisher. Another way to banish imagination’s monsters, as well as being great fun to read, alone or aloud—with, of course, exaggerated sound effects.
—Kirkus Reviews

Working in digital media, Hodgkinson (Troll Swap) creates patchwork, multicolored monsters, textured with stubble, scribbles, and dots. They aren’t too scary, though imaginative readers may still be glad they are asleep at first. Despite all the snoozing and snoring, it’s less a bedtime story than one of a sneaky, well-executed plan.
—Publishers Weekly Online

The collage illustrations, composed digitally, reflect a variety of textures and give the appearance of scratchboard, pastels, chalk, and thick paint, all in bright, candy- colored hues. The colors and fantasy appearance of the monsters make them humorous rather than frightening in this inventive and entertaining bedtime story.
—Booklist Online

A host of colorful, crazy, and sort of scary monsters will attract young readers to this lighthearted book…With an abundance of color and fun-filled text, this book is sure to be a hit with the primary set.
