Are You My Monster?

Written by Amanda Noll
Illustrated by Howard McWilliam

This board book for 0-3 year old listeners, presents the little monster-loving boy from I Need My Monster and Hey, That’s MY Monster!, as he tries to find the monster that matches his drawing. He describes his monster (green, long tail, pointy nails, big teeth), and then looks for these features in an assortment of amusing monsters until he finds the perfect match, which turns out to be his beloved STUFFED monster toy.
Children will enjoy comparing colors, checking if tails are long or short, if nails are pointy or round, if teeth are big or small until they, too, find the monster who is a perfect match.

From SLJ, On the Boardwalk: Our picks for the best board books of the season
A young boy needs to find the monster in his drawing before he can go to sleep. Little ones will enjoy the parade of silly creatures he checks against his drawing, while also learning colors and matching. The sweet ending shows that even those with sharp teeth and scratchy claws can be cuddly, turning the monster-under-the-bed trope on its head.

From Tome Tender
4 starsAre You My Monster is about a little boy who is searching for his favorite monster. He has drawn a picture of his monster and is comparing the monsters he finds with the monster of his drawing.
