Monster Needs a Costume (1st book series) – It’s almost Halloween and Monster needs to decide what he’s going to be. With so many options – a fireman, a ballerina, a cowboy, a ninja – how will he ever decide? In the playful, rhyming story, Monster shows young readers that sometimes being creative and daring to try something new are the best solutions.
Monster Needs His Sleep (2nd books in series) – It’s time for bed and Monster needs to go to sleep, but he just keeps finding more things to stay awake for! It isn’t until Monster admits he is afraid of the dark that he finds a glowing solution to his nighttime problem.
