My Favorite Picture Book

One of my all-time favorite books, and one that still makes me laugh to this day, is The Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone. Grover, the Sesame Street Muppet, is so scared of the monster he is sure is at the end of the book that he begs and pleads the reader to not turn any pages. He tries desperately to keep this from happening, and is so stressed as the pages keep turning. It is a good-natured story as the reader gently delights at Grover’s frustrations while also suspecting all will be okay. The illustrations are absolutely hilarious, and I think it is so fun to see what Grover will do next, and to find out about the monster at the end of the book. I think children will have a great time getting to be the brave one as they keep courageously turning pages despite Grover’s pleas, and in the end, they get to delight in being right that there really was nothing to be afraid of after all.
