Picture Books with Fun (and Sometimes Friendly) Monsters
a book list by John Schirle, Library Guy and Blogger at Books for Boys
shelved under Children's Books
Monster stories are like roller coasters – as long as you know they’re safe, it’s fun to scare yourself just a little bit. Here are some of my favorite monster picture books to read aloud for library story times. Each book stars scary-silly monsters treated a bit tongue-in-cheek, and each features superb illustrations and a delightful twist at the end.
