Short Stories for Little Monsters

We rated this book:


The secret lives of snails. What awaits you down the rabbit hole. How not to get called on in class. What trees talk about when no one’s around. There are answers galore lurking between the covers of Short Stories for Little Monsters, and they’re answers to questions you’ve never even thought to ask.

The recurring theme in this collection of children’s short stories is hidden worlds. Our thoughts, our wishes, what’s hiding in the darkness, the secret powers of animals and humans…the magic of what’s hidden is explored in ridiculous, delightful ways by the people and creatures that populate the book.

And the art bolsters this undercurrent of imagination the entire way. These hidden worlds are vivid and elaborate, full of tiny details, extra jokes, and inventiveness run amok. This is one of those books that opens young minds to the endless possibilities that await them not only in nature but at the end of a crayon or a pencil.

Steeped in the silly and the unexpected, Short Stories for Little Monsters is clever, peculiar, and bright all at once.
