Is That You, Monster?

About the Book
Sam and his friends are camping overnight, and even though their tents are pitched no farther from home than Sam's backyard, it's still an adventure. But night has fallen and Sam is feeling nervous. Is a monster lurking somewhere in the dark shadows? Sam begins searching, and kids who open this book can search with him. Adopting the touch-and-feel format on every page, this book features large color illustrations with a cardboard pocket on each picture. Kids are invited to reach into each pocket to help Sam seek out the monster. First, Sam tiptoes into the dark garage as the other kids look on. He reaches beneath an old blanket, where somebody--or something--might be hiding, and he touches something moist. Is it the monster's drool? A pocket into a tent's opening lets Sam--and young readers--touch something furry. The monster's body? When Sam and his readers reach down into a dry well, they touch something with spiky points. The monster's tail? At last, reaching beneath a canvas tarpaulin that covers an old row boat, Sam and his readers touch the monster himself! A big pop-up head springs out from the book's final two-page spread. All the other kids flee, but Sam is no longer frightened. This monster is smiling and friendly.

My Take on the Book
This is a cute book and is so interactive! My youngest daughter loved this book and kept asking me to read it over and over again. While the outside may make the book seem scary, it isn't that bad and actually in the end the main character finds that what he has feared is not as scary as he had thought. The book was beautifully illustrated and the images just jump off the page and with each page you are drawn deeper and deeper into the fun of the story itself. This was a great book for the whole family!
