Leonardo is truly a terrible monster -- terrible at being a monster, that is. Despite his best efforts, he cant seem to frighten anyone. But when he discovers the perfect nervous little boy, will he finally scare the tuna salad out of him? Or will he think of something even better? Mo Willems won six Emmy Awards for his writing on Sesame Street. A renowned animator, he is the creator of two Caldecott Honor winners: Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale and Dont Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, as well as The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!; Time to Say Please!; and Time to Pee! Mo lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York. Willems has mastered the use of empty space great expanses of pastel page, in mood colours (mauve, dusty pink), enhance the emotion tied up in Leonardos intense attempts to be frightening. Most kids wont be able to help chortling over Leonardos grotesque faces, or sympathizing entirely with the miserable boy, who has had a very bad day. A cheering vision of true and uproarious companionship that shows you can write about self-esteem and still be funny and clever. - The Toronto Star
