Poor Bernard! No one wants to pay any attention to him. Dad is busy with a project. Mom is busy in the kitchen. No one is listening to Bernard.

Maybe an outlandish tale will get their attention! 'There's a monster in the garden and it's going to eat me', exclaims Bernard! Still, no one hears him. Maybe the monster will listen to Bernard. Or maybe Mom and Dad will listen to the monster.

Nope! Mom and Dad pay the monster no notice. The monster starts to behave terribly to get more attention, but to no avail. This silly tale begs the question, is the monster just a monster, did the monster become Bernard, or did Bernard become the monster?

Parents and their wee ones will enjoy the bright and colorful illustrations. With just one short sentence per page there's plenty of time to enjoy the pictures. The board book will make it easier for little hands and monster's paws to help turn the pages.
