About the Books:
The Great Big Scary Monster
Sillier than scary and more little boy than big monster, The Great Big Scary Monster follows a four year old through his daily exploits. In between stepping on flowers and stomping through mud, he somehow finds the time to avoid blowing his nose. The story is told by a mother who, despite living with a creature who “never takes a bath,” knows her great big scary monster is smart, kind, and caring and finds his less civilized traits endearing. 2012
Sloth vs. Turtle.
Never underestimate how jealous a turtle can get! When Lucas wakes up to an excited crowd heading toward the sleeping two-toed sloth’s exhibit, he begins his book-long mission to prove that turtles are every bit as interesting, cute, and capable as sloths. Sloth VS Turtle is a funny, informative, and quirky read for kids and adults alike. Will Lucas be able to sway your vote to Team Turtle?
