First of all, awwwwwwwwwwww! This is such an adorable book. Really cute and heartwarming story.
Secondly, I loved the simplicity of the book. Great use of page space. The physial book is a little larger than a standard hardcover book. Willems utilizes the pages well in showing the huge scary monsters in contrast to Leonardo and Sam, who take up very little space on their pages.
Really great story. This is a perfect example of how to keep a book simple without compromising the story and emotions evoked.
Willems has such a talent for creating stories that children actually want to read and hear. Great addition to his many other successful books.
