Love Monster just can't sleep and the night becomes spookier. Is something out there to get him? Love Monster must be brave. Follow along to see if he can overcome his fears.

Although this isn't technically a Halloween book, we love this one for this time of year. The best illustrations! ( )

This book is about a monster that was scared because it was some noises in the house and was late and dark.

“Love Monster and the Scary Something” is a cute little picture book story about the little Love Monster and one night where he gets scared but it comes out he may not have had to be so scared in the first place. The little monster himself was thinking of the worst possible conclusion of what was making the noises that were scaring him, but sometimes our minds truly do exaggerate. The central message I believed was actually written out in the story by saying “you see, sometimes, it’s only when you’re brave enough to face what you’re afraid of that you find out there was nothing to be scared of, after all.” ( )

It's "bedtime o'clock" in Cutesville, and Love Monster is trying to get to sleep. Unfortunately he just can't drop off, lying there listening to the sounds of the night. But when some unexpected noises downstairs convince him that there is a scary something in the house with him, he finds he must choose between cowering under the covers or getting up and discovering what it is....

The fourth and thus far final picture-book devoted to the adventures of the eponymous Love Monster, Love Monster and the Scary Something addresses a common childhood experience: feeling afraid of the dark, and the noises coming from it, as one is trying to get to sleep. The conclusion of the story, in which the scary something turns out to be the smallest and cuddliest bunny in Cutesville, emphasizes that often our fears are more disturbing when they are not confronted. I was surprised to see that once again, just as in Love Monster and the Last Chocolate, our monster hero's special lady-monster friend makes no appearance, but leaving that aside, I did enjoy this newest installment of the series. Recommended to anyone who enjoyed the previous books about Love Monsters, as well as to anyone looking for children's stories addressing nighttime stories. ( )

It's way past bedtime o'clock in Cutesville . . . . but somebody can't sleep. The harder he tries to nod off, the more wide awake Love Monster is, and the later and darker and spookier it gets. When he hears a rustle rustle, then a creeeak, scuffle-shuffle BUMP, he's just sure there's a hungry, scary something on its way to get him. So Love Monster musters up his courage . . . . and discovers that the something scary isn't so scary after all. It's just his friend coming to pay Love Monster a visit. Turns out Love Monster's pal couldn't sleep, either.
