Description


Patrick is worried about his first day of monstergarten. Everyone knows you have to be SCARY in monstergarten. Patrick's friend, Kevin, offers to show Patrick how to be scary – they roar, they sneak up on people, they bare their teeth. But Patrick still isn't ready. His parents tell him to just be himself. But what if he's not scary ENOUGH?

Praise For…


“A diminutive fuchsia monster named Patrick has been told that being scary is a prerequisite for attending Monstergarten. Luckily, his gap-toothed blue friend, Kevin, offers to teach him how. On a funny wordless spread, Kaminsky shows the monsters making their scariest faces, hanging upside down, and stretching out their tongues (meanwhile, a cute white cat easily out-scares the pair). Though Kaminsky's Day-Glo characters look like the adorable result of a biochemical spill, readers will recognize that Patrick's mother's advice ("Just be yourself") is just as applicable to human classrooms as it is to monster ones.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kids will love the goofy illustrations.” —Instructor magazine
