During Toddler Storytime I read this book, then followed with a puppet retelling of the story. Big hit. Highly recommended for little kids who might be too afraid of other monster stories.

Be prepared to read and reread it many times!

A progression of cut-out pages form a monster until the middle of the book when the reader sends the monster away bit by bit and page by page. Themes – Colour, Faces, Monsters

Fun read! I love telling the monster to "Go Away!" and watching it disappear.

A great storytime book. Children will enjoy how the pages are cut to reveal the story and will want to help "banish" the monster if encouraged to participate.

A great, fun read to let children know that they have the power to banish monsters. Also a great book for storytime! Works well with toddlers and preschoolers.

One of my all-time favourites for storytime. Encourage participation from the children - it will empower them!
