Marilyn's Monster

author: Michelle Knudsen
illustrator: Matt Phelan

Some of the kids in Marilynís class have monsters. Marilyn doesnít have hers yet, but she canít just go out and look for one. Your monster has to find you. Thatís just the way it works. Marilyn tries to be patient and the kind of girl no monster can resist, but her monster doesnít come. Could she go out and search for him herself? Even if thatís not the way it works? From favorite picture-book creators Michelle Knudsen and Matt Phelan comes a story about one little girl and the perfect monster she knows is out there . . . and what happens when she decides sheís waited long enough.

The best-selling author of Library Lion pairs with award-winning illustrator Matt Phelan to create a picture book gem with an unexpected twist.
