You just have to love Monster and all his antics as he just wants to live every day to its fullest. In this novel, it is time for bed but Monster is just not quite ready to call it a day. There is much more that Monster wants to do before shutting his eyes. His friend, the boy, tries his hardest to get Monster to bed but being a Monster-naut seemed like a better idea and having a read-a-thon sounded better than climbing into bed. Flipping the TV on, Monster finds something there that inspires him but it isn’t long before the boy is dragging Monster off to bed. As Monster climbs into bed, he realizes that there are still things he needs before he can drift off to sleep. The boy is losing his patience but he gets Monster what he needs and as he tucks Monster in finally for the night the boy face is beaming. Now Monsters can be afraid of the dark too and the boy comes through again for Monster, as a true friend should. I really enjoy these Monster books. The illustrations are bright, bold and colorful and the fonts are big and fun to read. The stories are entertaining and his adventures always leave a smile on my face.

“Monster Needs His Sleep” is the second book in the Monster series by Paul Czajak and it is an absolutely wonderful bed time book.  In fact, it is an “any time” fun book to read.  The story is in a rhyming-type format and the pictures are so colorful.  What also makes the book fun is that it’s the kid who is trying to get the monster to go to sleep, instead of Mom & Dad ( a great role reversal).  The Monster makes all kinds of excuses for not going to sleep and these same excuses will probably sound very familiar to any child reading the book with their parents.  The author Paul Czajak, who once got an “F” on his college writing paper, has done an excellent job in making a story about bed time such fun, and illustrator Wendy Grieb’s pictures are very appealing and even energetic.    Although the target age is preschool through kindergarten, this is a great book for all kids.  I eagerly look forward to the other “monster” books in this series!
