Bedtime Story: I Will Fight Monsters for You by Santi Balmes and Illustrated by Lyona

Read for: Children's Challenge

Synopsis: "What if an entire world of MONSTERS lived underneath your floor? Martina is having trouble sleeping because she is afraid monsters might break through the floor and bring her into the monster world where she'll have to learn how to scare humans. Meanwhile, Anitram, a little girl monster, is also having trouble sleeping. There's a noisy little human jumping on the bed in the upside-down world under her floor! Martina and Anitram have more in common than they realize and when a mysterious hole opens up in the floor between their worlds, they are in for a big surprise! A beautiful and clever tale that makes a perfect bedtime story for anyone who is afraid of (or wants to become friends with) a monster!"

My Review: Munchkin is at times very worried about what is in his room at night, so I thought this would be a good one to pick up. It is a very sweet story. The monster world is definitely created to be cute and non-threatening to ease fears. It has very cute illustrations, I loved the color tones that were selected, perfect for bedtime. This book also had a really fun format with pages you have to turn side ways and upside down to read both sides of the story. It was a fun and unique book to read.

My Rating: This was a fun and cute book, while it doesn't exactly ease the fear that something else is in the room at night, it does make that mysterious monster a little less frightening.  We give it a rating of Four Paws.

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
