The highlights of the book are the illustrations and paper engineering. Ant Parker's monsters are wide-eyed and smiling, and they sport bright colors and stripes and polka dots. Each wears a white T-shirt displaying a different numeral.

"Monsters! Is this a scary book?" was one 4-year-old's reaction when introduced to the book. Many young children have real fears of imaginary creatures, but they'll be glad to see fun, childlike ones.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
