Read full description of the books:
I have been reading Mo Willems’ books for a long time and I have recently stumbled upon his book called “Leonardo the Terrible Monster!” “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” is a children’s book by Mo Willems which is about a small monster named Leonardo who tries to be a scary monster, but cannot do so effectively, so he tries to find a child that he could easily scare. “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” is a truly brilliant book that children everywhere will easily love for many years!
Leonardo was a terrible monster since he could not scare anyone and he did not have distinguishing features like Tony, who has thousands of teeth and Eleanor, who is so big. One day, Leonardo got an idea to get the most scared kid to scare and finally, Leonardo found a kid named Sam who was a huge scaredy –cat. Leonardo then creeps up behind Sam and…
Oh man! I never thought that such a book with the title “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” would actually turn out to be a hilarious and cute book! Mo Willems has done a brilliant job at both writing and illustrating this book that it has become an instant favorite on my “Mo Willems” bookshelf! The first thing about this book that surprised me was the cover of this book as the title looks like it is written like those introductions in the old western films, especially when the top part of the cover says “Your Pal Mo Willems Presents.” I also have to admit that the title surprised me since I thought that when it said that Leonardo is a terrible monster, it meant that he was the most ruthless monster to ever to be seen, but it turns out that he was called “terrible” because he cannot scare anything. Mo Willems makes this book simple yet creative at the same time as there might be about five to ten words per page, but the story is still hilarious enough to catch children’s interests. I also thought that the message at the end of this book was really cute as friendship is more important than trying to prove to people to be something that you are not. What I really loved about this book were the illustrations themselves as they are totally hilarious and my favorite images were of Leonardo’s monster friends, especially the image of Eleanor as we only see her huge legs since she is so big! I also really loved the images of Leonardo himself as he is shown being a small monster and has light olive fur and a blue tongue.
Overall, “Leonardo the Terrible Monster” is a truly hilarious book that both children and adults will enjoy for many years! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
