“Leanardo the Terrible Monster” was actually a surprisingly adorable book. I randomly grabbed it off the shelf, and was very impressed with the artwork and story plot. This is a modern fantasy picture book for children from Kindergarten to 1st grade. What I really loved about this book was its awesome pictures and funny story line. I liked how the illustrations flowed with the text, for example, the picture would fill up the entire page if something important was happening, and how sometimes the pictures were farther away from the text. I think the size of the pictures emphasizes the feeling the author is trying to portray, and I think this is a great strategy to engage young readers. Also, this story was very entertaining and funny! This would definitely be a fun read for kids about a monster who wishes he could, “scare the tuna salad out of someone”. This also has the perfect ending, concluding the story with the central message of the importance of being a good friend to the people who need it the most. ( )

This book has some simple dialogue--would be a good mentor text to introduce dialogue.

And of course, it's Mo. Love Mo Willems.

Short & sweet, with both Leonardo and Sam perfect representations of what it feels like to be a little kid. Also, gotta love books with good characterization, fun word choices, and true narrative arcs, that aren't too long for storytime. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786852941, Hardcover)

Leonardo is truly a terrible monster-terrible at being a monster that is. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to frighten anyone. Determined to succeed, Leonardo sets himself to training and research. Finally, he finds a nervous little boy, and scares the tuna salad out of him! But scaring people isn't quite as satisfying as he thought it would be. Leonardo realizes that he might be a terrible, awful monster-but he could be a really good friend.
