Time Out For Monsters! byJean Reidy

A young boy is sitting on a the a very plain corner.  This corner is not new to him and after spending so much time here he has decided it needs a little color.  He needs a window in this corner....and from there the corner comes alive.  Neubecker's illustrations of vibrant, bright colors brings the corner to life.  Maybe a little TOO alive as far as mom is concerned.  After a few dinosaurs, flowers, a monster, etc. the boy has to return the corner to the plain corner.  Cute, short book which will have some kids gasping, in sheer horror that a child would do such a things, and other children nodding their heads, maybe possibly because they HAVE done such a thing.
