Daddy Is a Monster... Sometimes is about two children and how they perceives the father's occasional anger. The father gets made when the children ask too many questions or when they ask for a cup of water. The books shows the father when he is not angry and then when he is. I did not really understand this book. I think I missed the point. I could not tell if the father had a mental illness and this was a description of how the children viewed it or if the father just had anger issues. Also, I did not understand why sometimes the father was illustrated with a cat-like head. ( )

This is the story of two young boys who often find themselves in a bit of trouble. When their father gets angry, they say their dad turns into a monster.

I like the illustrations in the book, but not so much the context.The idea that a parent turns into a monster is a bit unnerving. I would probably not read this is class because I am not a fan of the context. ( )

This is a book about two young boys, who get into a bit of mischief and when they think that their dads anger makes him a monster. I loved how the pictures would convert their dads face to a werewolf like character. The father explains to them in the end the only time he is a monster are when his kids act like monsters also. Very cute and humorous ( )

One brother tells his story about how sometimes his daddy is a monster. At the end of the day, the sons ask why their dad is such a monster sometimes. He replies, "only when I've got monster kids!" The illustrations are very interesting because they show the father morph into a wolf when he gets angry. I would recommend this book to a student who has trouble with obeying their parents. ( )
