About the Book



A handbook for youngsters that includes such instructions as "pour your monster a nice big glass of healthy, crunchy, oozy bug juice slimed with ooey-gooey snail trails to calm him."



Book Synopsis



For fans of How to Babysit a Grandpa comes a tongue-in-cheek story that is a step-by-step manual for putting your monster to bed.

If you have a monster that won't go to bed, don't bother asking your parents to help. They know a lot about putting kids to bed, but nothing about putting monsters to bed. It's not their fault; they're just not good at it. Read this book instead.

It will tell you what to feed your monster before bed (it's not warm milk), and what to sing to your monster (it's not a soothing lullaby), and what to read to your monster to send him off to dreamland in no time (the scarier, the better).

Just make sure you don't get too good at putting monsters to bed--or you might have a BIG problem on your hands!

Praise for Zachariah OHora:

"The text is pitch-perfect, and the art is its match." --Chicago Tribune (Wolfie the Bunny)

"Picture books with hip, quirky illustrations that are not just funny but also have plenty of heart are hard to find. The stylish My Cousin Momo by Zachariah OHora has it all." --The Boston Globe (My Cousin Momo)

[set star] "OHora's acrylic paintings are the heart of this tale. They clearly show everyone's feelings . . . and there are brilliant bits of humor and whimsy." --School Library Journal, starred review (Wolfie the Bunny)

"OHora could paint stones in the street and make them funny." --Publishers Weekly (My Cousin Momo)
