The Loch Mess Monster
If you thought there was a monster in the Loch Ness, you would be wrong. There is not a monster, but three! Deep in the Loch, Nessie and her husband Fergus, and their wee laddie, Angus, live. Monster rules need to be followed, and Angus needs to learn them. The most important rule of all is to never, ever go up to the surface of the Loch. Angus is a pretty good little monster and follows most of the rules but isn’t good about picking up. He has to stay in his room until he learns to follow that rule. All the stuff he doesn’t pick up begins to pile up, and that pile gets higher and higher. It is hard for Angus to get to the top of the pile to sleep, and, when he falls out of bed, it is a loooooong way down. Angus’s pile finally reaches the surface of the loch, and what Angus sees there is unbelievable.
Helen Lester has written an absolutely charming story with a good lesson well-hidden within it, but the illustrations by Lynn Munsinger are a real treat and will have little ones (and big ones) giggling through this sweet book.
