HARRY AND THE MONSTER by Sue Mongredien, illustrated by Nick East

Pages     28          Ages     3 - 7
No Lexile or AR information available at this time.

One night, Harry has a bad dream - a scary dream about a big purple and green monster. The next night Harry doesn't want to go to bed because he's afraid the monster will return. His mother suggests he imagine a pair of pink pants on the monster's head, telling him it will make him laugh and the monster won't be scary any longer. Harry gives it a try, but in the dream, putting pink pants on his head only makes the monster angry, scaring Harry even more. Night after night, the monster comes back and despite the suggestions from Mom and Dad, Harry is afraid to go to sleep. Then one night, Dad suggests Harry confront the monster with an Angry Mom. This is just the trick to make the monster not so scary. The monster's reaction to being yelled at by an angry mom is sure to make children laugh. In the end, Harry feels sorry for the monster and they become quite good friends, playing the rest of the night.

Harry and the Monster is a cute and fun way to help children learn to confront their fears and would make a great addition to your child's reading list.

Happy Reading,
Miss Laurie
