Sad Monsters: Growling on the Outside, Crying on the Inside by Frank Lesser, Willie Real (Illustrator)
Sad Monsters.....what to say about this book. I saw it one day in Barnes and Nobles on their Bargain Priced shelves. I was about to pass it by when I read the quote on the cover which said, "Thanks to this hilarious book, I'm no longer scared of monsters. However, I am still terrified of books" - Stephen Colbert. Well, If Stephen loved it....and the quote...hilarious! It looked like a fairly easy read, so..why not!
This was a really awesome buy! I enjoyed the nonchalant laid back read. It was hilarious and the pictures were a cool addition. The short stories within the book involved monsters that we have all grown up with: Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts...etc. They were stories about the situations these monster were gloomy about.
The humor was geek humor too, stuff that i could relate to, it is hard to explain, without an example. But instead, I will say..if you have a sense of humor, a love for monsters..this is a great little book! give it a try....you wont be disappointed. ***
