This is a very simple book with simple phrases on the pages. The rhyming text makes it a fun read aloud that will have little ones romping and stomping themselves. With bright colorful pages the illustrator uses oil, acrylic paint, and gel to create beautiful pictures that draw you into the monster fun. This fantasy fiction picture book is a great read for the whole family. ( )

The illustrations are animated and bright. The author engages the reader with short rhyming text. I believe any young child will adore the story and illustrations.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763657271, Hardcover)

Those little monsters are back — and on the move! Jane Yolen takes her rhymes to the playground, aided by Kelly Murphy’s exuberant illustrations.

Stretching, twirling, tumbling, jumping! Welcome to a playground teeming with monsters, bristling with energy, and scaring up ways to have fun. Monsters swing and slide and piggyback ride. Monsters run three-legged races and fall on their faces. Monsters eat monster-sicles and vie for the fountain (Gulp...Grrrr...Grumble...Growl...All better now!). In this high-octane sequel to Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters, wild and whimsical artwork revs up a read-aloud text that will have little listeners jumping up to join the action.
