PreSchool-Grade 1—The first half of this rhyming picture book follows a group of gnarly monsters as they hop on various construction machines, working to build a "frightfully fine" haunted house. Break time reveals these rough-and-ready beasts are children when monster mom brings lunch, reads a story, and puts them down for a nap, complete with "blankies." Awake once more, the builders install a lawn, sidewalks, and a road in time for a monster family to move in. The India-ink drawings colored digitally in neon-bright hues exude a jazzy, busy look that brings to life the chaos that results when monsters and machines meet. Each pop-eyed character (three boys and one girl) is a different color and has a unique look—hair, horns, ears, and eyes—for readers to delight in. The endpapers sport almost two dozen monstrous machines to drool over.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI

�"Lund's (Dinosailors) rhyming story, about a team of ghoulish monsters who ride bulldozers and cranes, has just about everything a child could hope for, from fantastical characters to vehicles, from muck and mud to screams and shouts to `monsteroni and cheese.'. . . The fun extends to the endpapers, which feature monsters in construction machines." --Publishers Weekly, starred review (Publishers Weekly
