As you turn the die-cut pages of this little picture book you'll see Little Green Monster's face gradually appear. But once his face is clearly defined it will then begin to disappear as the stars come out and bedtime nears.

It's an unusual picture book and the fun here is turning each page to see the little monster's bluish-green nose, his squiggly ears, red, smiley mouth, single, curly, purple hair and pumpkin like, green face materialize.

Then, as the stars begin to appear on each page you reverse the process until, on the final page, all you find are stars and the moon.

This bedtime book will not only get your little monster in the mood for sleep, hopefully, but it will most likely also become one of his or her most favorite books. There is a very limited text but the child will probably just enjoy turning the colorful pages to watch the face appear and then disappear.
