#8 on The Gittle List 2014: Best Indie Children's Picture Books
The Wanting Monster, the charming story about how an older brother deals with the holiday greediness of his younger brother, is written by now two-time Gittle List winner Mariana Llanos. The Wanting Monster is a fun story that captures the excitement and tradition of how a child prepares for the holiday. And, the loving relationship between brothers that is ultimately more important – and satisfying – than any toy. Julian Galvan’s illustrations have a cartoon quality that kids will get a kick out of.
(Disclosure: Ms. Llanos entered "The Wanting Monster" into The Gittle List: Top 10 Indie Children's Picture Books of 2014 contest. There was no entry fee and I was under no obligation to review it.)
