Tickle MonsterAbrams Books
This engaging picture book prompts young children to face their monster fear and take charge of the situation! The reader is prompted to tickle various parts of the monster, deconstructing the creature and repurposing his parts into a far less threatening scene. His horns become the moon, his legs and arms become trees, his nose becomes a car . . . slowly but surely, the monster's shapes build a home! Reminiscent of Ed Emberly's Go Away, Big Green Monster, this text empowers the child to be brave and clever in the face of adversity. Manceau's bold, geometric illustrations create a deceptively simple visual narrative that encourages readers to see the parts as well as the whole.
