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

"Two picture book masters come together for their best collaboration yet in this very funny picture book that speaks directly to howstereotyping and labels make someone feel. The text is gorgeouslywritten and works beautifully when shared aloud, particularly by someone willing to go full out on the voicing of Floyd. The twist at the end is wonderful as well. Funny and smart, this picture book looks at hownames hurt even if you are a monster." -- Waking Brain Cells, August 2016
