From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Floyd Peterson is sick and tired of being called a monster. "Just because I have horns. And wild eyes. And clompy feet. And long toenails. And crazy hair. And fangs. And a huge, toothy smile that glows in the dark." That doesn't mean that he's a monster. Children really hurt his feelings when they scream and run when he is grocery shopping or simply trying to sleep under a bed. He thinks it's time everyone learned some manners and called him by his real name, Floyd Peterson. Luckily, by the end of the text, Floyd has finally made himself heard while hiding in a closet. Shea's signature illustrations with bold lines and vivid colors are a perfect match for the minimal text on each page. Pairing this book with Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster or Jon Stone's The Monster at the End of This Book will make a fun, interactive monster-themed storytime even more enjoyable. VERDICT A perfect choice for a rollicking read-aloud, library collections, and picture book fans everywhere.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI
"In this extended monologue from the team behind I Will Chomp You!, a hairy, purple, bean-shaped blob with claws argues that being called a monster--as natural as it might seem--hurts his feelings. It's not just good comedy but a genuinely thought-provoking exercise." --Publishers Weekly
"Pair this with John's and Shea's previous collaboration, I Will Chomp You!, to keep those little meat snacks on their toes."--Horn Book

Daddy, I think there is a monster in my closet.
No, son, it's just Floyd Peterson.
Oh...okay. Good night.
