Monster Sleepover!



Monster Sleepover!
written and illustrated by Scott Beck
unpaged
picture book
New York : Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2009

A whole bunch of monsters get together for a slumber party. Snacks, games, and silliness are just some of the activities going on at this party. The monsters include a dinosaur, skeleton, mummy, vampire, ghost, alien and robot. The illustrations are cutely simple. The text at the bottom of the page is unnecessary and a little annoying for the most part. The square panels with the illustatrions are laid out like a very basic comic book. This part of the book is the best part. Pay particular attention to the robot, he was the cause of much laughter for my son. Overall, not a great story or illustrations, but some humor makes it not a total waste of time.
