Booktalk #1

Leonardo is a monster.  No, I'm not just saying that.  He really is.  But Leonardo has a big problem.  He isn't particularly scary!  All his monster friends are.  But Leonardo can't scare anybody.  What's he to do?  He searches until he finds Sam.  And guess what happens.

Booktalk #2

Mo Willems has created a clever story that will capture the hearts of children all over. Leonardo is a terrible monster. He isnít scary. He isnít big or weird, and he doesnít have a lot of teeth. So, Leonardo decides to research for a scaredy-cat kid he can scare the tuna salad out of. Can you guess what happens? Read this endearing book of friendship and acceptance to find out.  (Prepared by: Lisa Conrath for SCASL Picture Book Awards, 2007-2008)
