Mr. Stacatto

Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

Despite having monsters in the title, this is a rather gentle going to bed book. I enjoyed the author's incorporation of language such as "chase you into bed" and "gobbled down a snack" that shows a tender side of fatherhood while still reminding you of their monster side.

This book is so much fun and the illustrations will make you think all monsters are adorable. :) This book is perfect for Halloween but also great all year long, as it's just about a parent and child having fun together during the day and ends as a bedtime book. It's sweet, fun, and has a lot of different "monsters" in it.
