Love Monster is such a lovely little book, we really loved reading it.
Monster is a little bit different, he's not cute and fluffy, and living in Cutesville that can be pretty tough. He is unloved, so he goes in search of someone to love him, for just being himself. He searches high and low, with no luck. I just wanted to pick this lonely little fellow up an give him a big hug. But in the end love finds him, when he least expects it.
The illustrations in this book are wonderful, they are bold, bright, different and just really stand out of the page. Between the story and the illustrations, this book held my little one's (3) attention throughout, I kept hearing AWWW and poor Monster.
The lesson in this book is brilliant, it teaches you not to judge on looks, it's OK to be different and everybody deserves to be loved.
We received Love Monster in the post this morning and we have already read it four times together, so this book is definitely a winner.
Thank-you Rachel Bright for putting together this lovely little book and thank-you to Harper Collins for sending it for review! We will be looking out for more works form Rachel Bright.
A five star book :)
