Format: Paperback
This is a beautiful & unique children's storybook about writing a book! It's a "folder size" glossy softcover, and is filled with vivid imagery and a couple of sentences per page. Published by Scholastic Inc, this book has been featured on the acclaimed PBS-TV children's show "Reading Rainbow".

Simon's Book is a fantastic story for children of all ages that wonderfully illustrates what can happen when you use your imagination. Henrik Drescher's illustration and artwork along with the humourous plot-line and way-cool ending make it a MUST READ. :)

Format: Paperback
Henrik Drescher has definitely made this book an instant treat to everyone as his vivid illustrations of Simon and the monster produced both suspense and action for the readers.

This story is about a little boy who starts to draw out a story about Simon and the monster and then suddenly goes to sleep before finishing his book. When the boy is asleep, his drawings come to life and both the ink pens and the bottle of ink tries to help Simon in his monstrous predicament. When the monster suddenly starts to chase Simon and his friends, Simon and his friends must try to escape their foe. Of course, this book has a surprise ending, which I will not reveal until you read it yourself.

This is one of the few books where both the main characters have a happy ending instead of one of the characters have a happy ending. The text is witty and the illustrations are so vivid as they displayed the monster being drawn as a vividly scary monster. This book is an instant treat for all children and adults alike.

I checked this book from our local library many times and finally I purchased one. The story shows how a boy is chased around by a scary monster who turns out to give him a big kiss. It is friendly! I believe I purchased this book mainly because the scary monster turned out to be a friend after all (he takes a nap with the boy in the end). The story also features the writing implements (pens) helping him out, which is a fun twist in the story. This was a Reading Rainbow book from years ago when my children were young (I am reading this story to their children!).
