|Grouch, Grump, and little Gloom ''n'' Doom spend much of their time arguing over who is the "biggest and baddest" until they build a monster together that turns out to be very different than what they expect, in this new work by Caldecott Honor illustrator McDonnell. Full color.|
From the Publisher:
Once upon a time, there were three little rascals who thought they were the BIGGEST, BADDEST monsters around. But when they decide to build a huge monster of their own, he isn't exactly what the creatures were expecting. He's happy. He giggles. He's just grateful to be alive. And he has a lesson for his grouchy creators that only takes two little words.
In this playful tale from bestselling picture book author Patrick McDonnell, a very BIG monster shows three very BAD little monsters the power of boundless gratitude.
"McDonnell's greatest strength is to explore with tenderness the finest instincts humans show, without making them prissy or maudlin....Another winner from McDonnell--and good Halloween fare, too." (starred review) 07/16/2012 "Caldecott Honor winner McDonnell produces a special tale that seamlessly blends an engaging text, gentle humor and skillful illustrations that readers of all ages can appreciate." 08/01/2012 "The message is well executed, and the little beasts' exuberance at their badness keeps the tale from devolving into platitudes. This delightful title will provide a new option for 'not so scary' monster storytimes." 10/15/2012
