The Essential Worldwide Monster Guide

Written by Linda Ashman, illustrated by David Small

Dear Traveler:
Say you’re sailing in the south,
Or hiking in the east.
Your holiday’s delightful—
Till you meet a pesky beast.

What now?
Should you ignore it?
Offer presents?
Run and hide?

Don’t make a costly blunder—
Take our handy monster guide!

“The poems are well served, not surprisingly, by Small’s energetic and wacky watercolors that fill each spread. His combination of warm, light textures and vivid, thick lines or pockets of color anchor each composition…”
