Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Preschool-Grade 3--After being tucked in for the night, a young boy realizes that his room is filled with lots of monsters, including "a long, thin one under [his] bed, eating popcorn" and "one bumping around in [his] closet, doing who knows what." A trip to the kitchen where his parents are eating pie yields a marvelous suggestion: monsters are afraid of ducks, his mother says. Back in his room, a family quacking session sends those scary intruders packing. Bunting's funny solution to an eternal bedtime woe should lead to quacking parties in bedrooms across the country. Bernardin's wacky creatures are appealing in their hideousness. The cheery tones of the illustrations offer comfort to any fearful child. A wonderful addition to bedtime and storyhour collections.

James Bernardin's illustrations in "too many monsters" are nothing short of AMAZING! I have never written a review before but I just had to on his work. The illustrations are mystifying! Vibrant and captivating! The expressions on the faces of the characters really do something to you as they leap off the page demanding your full attention. My daughter (age three) stops me from turning the page just so she can stare at the expressions drawn on the characters faces (I KNOW what she's looking at because I'm seeing what she's seeing but I can't put my finger on the magic!) I cannot find the words to express to anyone out there how awesome this book trully is Especially for the younger children. Eve bunting writes very "simply" to the younger reader, a story of a young boy getting tucked in for bed and what happens after that. Magical all across the board this book empowers children in a simple yet brilliantly imaginative way to laugh instead of fear what might lurk in the dark. My daughter has made me read this book five or more times each night and you know what? I myself REALLY ENJOY reading this over and over with her triumphantly celebrating with the characters of this book when its time for this family to take back whats thiers! JAMES BERNARDIN you have outdone yourself! Please include "this" family in another one of your books the expressions are PRICELESS and FULL OF LIFE! I'm buying!

I LOVE this book. I Love the story and the illustrations. I read it when I worked in a daycare and couldn't remember the name. After YEARS I finally tracked it down! I was so excited I had to tell our local children's librarian about my find!

Format: Paperback
This book is a fun children's book about the monsters who come out to haunt children in their bedrooms at night. Yes, these monsters frighten the little boy who tells the story, but they're really not all that scary. They have amusing body shapes, along the lines of Monsters, Inc., and instead of saying "Boo", they engage in forbidden activities like sitting on the dresser or playing ball in the house. When faced with this monster problem, the boy seeks the aid of his parents. Together, they discuss the problem and brainstorm a solution. Then they enact the solution together as a team, and the monsters all jump out the window so that the boy can feel safe as he goes back to bed. The pictures are very engaging, and many young children get the giggles upon seeing the monster with the painted toenails. With only one or two sentences per page, the book is a great choice for a short story-hour selection.
