Bold colors and clever die cuts highlight this simple, classic picture book for children aged three years and up. When we first meet Big Green Monster, we see only his large yellow eyes. A turn-of-the-page later and we are staring at his large nose and his eyes. Enthusiastic children will "read" along as white teeth, small ears, purple hair, and green face are added to the monster's visage.

But... YOU DON'T SCARE ME!
So, GO AWAY, scraggly purple hair...
.

A happy conclusion allows youngsters to ensure the monster disappears as quickly as he arrived. Great fun for all and a good opportunity to extend the learning by exploring colors and descriptive words.
