Praise

Praise for How to Talk Monster:

Entertaining. . . A lighthearted take on an unlikely friendship.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A satisfying picture book that will leave you smiling.” —Booklist

“With visual and verbal directness and broad humor that gently tackles themes of assumption and exclusion, Plourde (The Boy Whose Face Froze Like That) and Lowery (Wood Could) capture a special night out—one that may remind readers of their own comics creations.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“The language element is particularly effective in this graphic-novel beginning reader as the monster’s gibberish offers both humor and a playful opportunity for readers to stretch developing literacy skills . . . Lowery’s digital art is amusingly goofy as well as pleasingly breezy, with simple lines and figures and a palette subdued just enough to not detract from the words. Both readers who brave checking under the bed and ’fraidy cats who huddle under the covers will appreciate this tale of fanciful nocturnal fun.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
