What do hungry monsters like to eat? 1 spider swallowed whole, 2 leaping frogs, and “3 entire whales” for the ogre with gigantic claws and scales! Kids will enjoy this fun feast of a counting book, with 10 colorful creatures and their meals of grasshoppers, scorpions, owls, and prickly porcupines. Foldout pages and simple, humorous rhyming text make this a delight to read aloud.
