The Blurb

It time for The Best Monster in the World competition!  Alfred can't wait to enter Sidney! But maybe Sidney is too good a pet to be a great monster...

My Two Cents

Candlewick is one of my favorite publishers.  They can pick a winner a mile away.  This book is adorable and my boys giggled and giggled when we read it!

The story is one that makes a young reader think about what makes a friend...some things matter and some things don't.  And in the end, we love folks for the totality of who they are--their strengths and their weaknesses combined.  And win or lose, a friend always loves you just the way you are. Combined with Hindley's delightful illustrations, this book is a must read!
