Review

"Not at all scary, these creatures are fully fleshed-out and slightly goofy-looking. Bright colors contrast sharply with a midnight black background, creating a cheerful mood. Cartoonlike layout, repetitive language, and situational humor make these a good choice for beginning readers." --School Library Journal
