Most kids would panic at the thought of a monster lurking underneath their bed, but not Ethan. He’s desperate to get his back. Hey, That’s My Monster!, from Amanda Noll, is a quirky bedtime story with plenty of good humor, thrills, and sibling exasperation. Bold and colorful, the illustrations by Howard McWilliam are reminiscent of Monsters, Inc., with their large, expressive eyes, gleeful movement, and hideously charming monsters. Spot-on interactions and conversations between Ethan and his sister Emma, an active, sleep-resistant toddler, will resonate with families everywhere. So whether little sister is a sweetheart, a monster, or maybe a bit of both, bedtime has never been so entertaining.
