Monster School by Kate Coombs

If you’re looking for some spooky rhyming fun, then Monster School by Kate Coombs will fit the bill.

In this kooky and zany book, young readers will find rhymes about a student who loses things–like body parts, a unique family tree, a boy who avoids his homework, a girl who you would be wise not to cross, and more monsters with all kinds of antics. These delightful lyrics will entertain any youngster who enjoys monsters. Accompanied by spectacular artwork from Lee Gatlin, Monster School is sure to be a favorite for Halloween and other times of the year when you want a laugh. Reminiscent of Shel Silverstein, this book will get lots of reading time.

Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex

It’s bedtime in the cold gray tomb with a black lagoon, and two slimy claws, and a couple of jaws, and a skull and a shoe and a pot full of goo. But as a little werewolf settles down, in comes the Goon determined at all costs to run amok and not let any monster have his rest.

A beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send up in this utterly monsterized parody; energetic art and a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again.
