Whimsical illustrations combine with cheeky verses in this quirky, hilarious alphabet book that introduces young readers to monsters from all over the world.
Monster ABC covers the full monster spectrum: Some are well-known (e.g., Alien, Ghost, Zombie), some are regional favorites (e.g., Jersey Devil, Sasquatch) and some come with a passport (e.g., Banshee, Krampus, Quetzalcoatl). These gorgeously rendered monsters and silly verses prove that monsters don't have to be scary--they can be as friendly and silly as we want them to be.

"From 'A is for Alien' to 'Z is for Zombie, ' Monster ABC's rhyming text gives simple introductions to the monsters of the alphabet; silly illustrations make even the scariest of monsters near impossible to find frightening."
--Shelf Awareness

"Innovative, modern and incredibly fun. Rhyming board books are prevalent, but rollicking, fun ones are rarer. Incredibly imaginative and funny artwork"
--Creators Syndicate

"Twins Derek and Kyle Sullivan have a winner of a board book on their hands with Monster ABC."
--PDX Parent Magazine

"It's a refreshing change from saccharine kids' stories...This children's board book is quirky fun from Alien to Zombie."
--The Seattle Times

"Monster ABC is our favorite new family book this year. Not only is the artwork amazing, but the rhymes for each letter make this a great, infinitely re-readable alphabet book."

"Monster ABC parodies the worldly alphabet to create a more flexible, imaginative, less patriarchal view of letters and the world at large."
--Dr. Rebecca A. Brown, No More Apples, No More Zebras: C is for Chupacabra and Other Happy Gothic Lessons in Monster ABC
