13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided

13 monstesr"How do you do?

I'm Professor LeGrand,
Of LeGrand University,
The world's foremost expert
On monster diversity.

Pay careful attention to my
Lecture this morning,
Take meticulous notes,
And remember this warning.

I have worked forty years on this neatly typed list
Of mischievous monsters whose natures consist
Of conduct I best can describe here at present
As something far less than what most would call pleasant." - From the book (Hardcover, 29 pages)

Thanks to Professor LeGrand, you can be forewarned of the Hedge-Standing Snit, Whichwayawawa, Three-Toed Albanian Sock Bats, Snurps from the Gamma-Goon Stars and nine other monsters in his revealing book 13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided (transcribed by Kevin Shortsleeve and illustrated by Michael Austin).

And to be forewarned is to be forearmed, should you encounter one of these thirteen beasts!

With Seussian prose, author Shortsleeve takes readers on a curious tour that's more amusing than scary, aided by Austin's colorful illustrations.

Children who enjoy the poems of Shel Silverstein or the musicality of Dr. Seuss' verse will likely enjoy 13 Monsters Who Should Be Avoided, as would parents, teachers and caregivers who like a bit of tongue-twisty mouthfuls in their storytelling palates.
