Picture Book Puzzler: Monsters & Mayhem

Boo! Have you checked under your bed and inspected your closet? Today especially you might need to be on the look out for monsters. You and I know that picture books are not just cute puppies and fluffy bunnies. Some of the best picture books let children examine and confront their own fears and inner monsters. Besides, not all monsters are scary. Today, let's embrace our wild sides with a few of my favorite monster books. Can you name each one based on the image below? Put your guesses in the comments and I'll be back on Friday with the answers. Happy Halloween! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
