Monster & Son by David LaRochelle Book Review

Monster & Son by David LaRochelle 
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Release Date: April 12, 2016

Just in time for Father's Day, this adorable book follows all kinds of monsters as they spend time with their sons. Werewolves, yetis, giant lizards. Monsters with teeth and horns and fur.

This is a fantastic read-aloud for fathers and sons. (although I think it could include girls too) The rhymes are wonderful and roll off the tongue as if singing a song. It is easy to find the rhythm. Vibrant detailed illustrations fill every page, which may make it more suitable for a lap book rather than storytime. In the sea of Father's Day books that are out there, this one stands out.

Thank you, Venus, for such a nice review of my book. I appreciate your kind words very much. Like you, I think Joey Chou's illustrations are wonderful!
