The story itself is pretty simple, the monster describes imagined human traits and parts and negatively compares them to its own. At one stage though the monster mother tells the monster there are no such things as children then a few pages later it is a child giving the lame old children are more afraid of you then you are of them speech. These pages contradict each other and are a little confusing for children, the author should have picked one theme and written the rest of the story around that. Still it's a pretty fun read most kids will enjoy.
In "Are You Afraid of Children" the monster is explaining WHY it is afraid of children. They have only 2 eyes, rather than 3, like the monster. They have ugly, straight white teeth, instead of broken green ones, like the monster has. Children also like to eat gross things like cookies, strawberries and ice cream; any decent monster prefers bugs, worms, spiders, and toes.
The mother and father monsters go through the usual routine of trying to convince their little darling that there is no such thing as children. But in the end, it is a little girl who tells the children to listen to their parents, and just remember monsters are more afraid of them than they are of monsters!
If you have a young child who is sometimes worried about monsters under the bed or in the closet, this book may be your most promising method for curing that fear. I highly recommend it.
You KNOW your mother tells you "There is no such thing as children."
So, why are you afraid of them?
True, they are "small and ugly" and have horrible "clean white teeth." I hear they even like to eat WEIRD food!
But that's no reason to be afraid...is it?
This is an ADORABLE book. The illustrations and text are FANTASTIC, and feature the sort of nifty, retro-look reminiscent of those awesome Studio cards of the 50s and 60s.
It's been many decades since I was a kid, but I know I would have loved this book when I was "small and ugly."
