Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters

author: Jane Yolen
illustrator: Kelly Murphy

Creep, gurgle, crawl, tumble! Meet two young monsters who are far from scary — they’re too busy having fun. They go to school, play outside with their friends, and eat after-school snacks. But they also have a bedtime, whether or not they’re ready for it! Young children and parents alike will find much to identify with as they follow these lovable little monsters getting ready for bed. With wildly colorful illustrations full of whimsy and warmth, Kelly Murphy brings Jane Yolen’s gently rhyming tale to rambunctious life.

"There’s plenty in this scary-sweet book to please children all year round." — Kirkus Reviews
