Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters: a lullaby by Jane Yolen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen. Illustrated by Kelly Murphy.

This bedtime story follows two adorably boisterous monster children through their daily routine until it is time for sleep. They finish their school day, head for the park, and play and dance their whole way home. Mama Monster greets them at the door and begins their end of day ritual of dinner and bath-time. They may eat worm burgers, use stink soap, and have dangerous carnivorous plants in their home- but they are just typical kids.

Yolen's simple rhyming lullably is made beautifully creepy through the illustrations of Kelly Murphy. The pictures are both eerie and inviting. Your preschooler will not be frightened of these cute little monsters but will love for you to read this one over and over at bed-time!
