Time Out For Monsters! byJean Reidy
A young boy is sitting on a stool....in the corner....in 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.
