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.

When three monsters set off to create the biggest monster ever, I don't think they excepted to create not only one of the biggest monsters, but also one of the nicest. The monsters' monster shows them what it's like to show gratitude and be nice. Something that everything can learn to do a little more. Good story, cute illustrations, and perfect for picking up this Halloween season. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
