Publisher Summary

Once upon a time, there were three little rascals who thought they were the BIGGEST, BADDEST monsters around. Then along came an even BIGGER monster who changed their minds. And all it took was 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.

Such a great book, especially for around Halloween time, but it’s worth reading year round! The message that being grateful is far more enjoyable than being a little monster is a great one, and the setting in this very unrealistic situation makes it enjoyable rather than overly moralizing.

I really love this book, especially for Halloween time! It’s my favorite Halloween book, and I love it every time I read it. Great for kids because it shows that monsters aren’t all scary, and promotes saying thank you! The illustrations are fun, too. :)
