Move Over! Ten Monsters In The Bed by Katie Cotton
BEFORE YOU START: THIS BOOK HAS MANY MONSTERS
FALLING TO THE GROUND.
PRESS EACH ONE THAT'S ON THE FLOOR TO HEAR A FUNNY SOUND!"
The bed's too small, and that's not all!
Ten monsters are jammed into the top bunk bed, and no one is happy! Too many freaky bodies and way too many noises!
Give 'em the boot!
THE BURPY ONE WAS WAS PRETTY PROUD.
HE THOUGHT HIS BURPS THE BEST.
THE OTHERS BUMPED HIM TO THE FLOOR,
THEY REALLY WEREN'T IMPRESSED.B-u-u-r-r-p!
And so it goes. The Snorer goes over, the Sneezer is out in the cold, and the itcher is scratched from the list, as all head overboard. Ditto for the Muncher, the Hiccupper, and the Slurper. And the rude noises are just getting started, as the next-to-last monster noise gets off the biggest guffaw of all....(and no, dear reader, I'm not tellin' with what) in Katie Cotton's boisterous counting book, Ten Monsters in the Bed (Little Bee Books, 2014), filled with wacky, quirky, and silly monsters, done up in riotous colors and squiggly shapes. This one is a fun and sugar-free surprise for the trick-or-treat bag for that special little giggler on your list.
Preschoolers who prefer a touch of the ribald will jump at a chance to push the magic button on this "toy and movable book." As Kirkus Review forthrightly puts it, "Setting new standards for gross sound effects, 10 monsters snore, scream, scratch, hiccup, belch, or worse."
