Love Monster by Rachel Bright is a delight to read aloud. It tells the story of a decidedly uncute, unfluffy monster who just wants someone to love him as he is (googly-eyed and all). His search takes him ‘high, low, and middle-ish’ as we go along the journey with him.
At some point, everyone feels left out and insecure. This story gives hope that somehow, somewhere we will find someone who will love us just the way we are. The illustrations are delightfully colorful with just the right amount of detail. Pre-schoolers will love pointing out the colors of the cute fluffy animals, and sighing “poor monster” along with the reader.
