Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters

Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen
Illustrated by Kelly Murphy

     The monsters in Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters are just like any other kids.  They go to school -at Creepy P. Elementary school-  creeping and crawling.  They play outside, hip-hoping and tumbling.  They head back home slithering and waving.  The eat their dinner -worm burgers- and take a bath.  They even say their prayers and climb into bed.  And they don't like falling asleep right away either, "they toss and turn and bounce instead." Until finally they drift to sleep.
     Young readers of Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters will delight in the funny character in the book, and will relate to the daily activities of the two main monsters.  The illustrations by Murphy are great, with a large array of different monsters in funny situations, sure to capture the attention of all the monster fans.  A cool and different bedtime story.
