Book Blurb

For the first time ever, human beings of all ages have a chance to witness the Monster Ballet. It is a rare spectacle indeed, for only one night a year do the monsters dare be so bold. Peek behind the curtain to see the Monster Ballet. It is one show you won’t want to miss!

Monster Ballet is a fun, rhyming 36-page picture book with a unique, interactive ending. It is excellent for ages 3-7 and makes for a memorable read aloud.

My Review

Monster Ballet is a delightful story about witches and goblins and all that are scary, but are they really? Once a year they hold a Monster Ballet.

The rhyming lines tell the story of the once a year ballet performed by monsters in a fun way that is sure to have children giggling. The story is well thought out and written in such a way to soothe children’s fears and give them something to laugh about. The book is beautifully illustrated depicting charming monsters on each page. This non-scary book is sure to become a favorite with both children and their parents.

I highly recommend Monster Ballet to children from three to seven years of age and to their parents and teachers.

This book was gifted to me by the author.
