I received an eARC from Net Galley in exchange for an honest opinion. This has no way impacted my views.
This lovely picture book has some gorgeous illustrations. I absolutely loved the artwork inside it – it was so colourful and so detailed. The monsters really popped off the page to me.
I love how creative this book is – how the “monsters” are afraid of how loud and smelly the main character’s baby sister is!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like this before, and it was such a joy to read.
I think any young child who is suddenly a big sibling, or a child who is afraid of monsters in the closet can enjoy this book.
