Five Ugly Monsters Board Book Reformat
Tedd Arnold. Cartwheel Books, $6.99 (28pp) ISBN 978-0-439-52465-0
Five Ugly Monsters by Tedd Arnold counts down in a board-book variation of the classic rhyme that traditionally features monkeys: ""Five ugly monsters/ jumping on the bed./ One fell off and/ bumped its head./ Called for the doctor and the doctor said,/ ""No more monsters/ jumping on the bed!"" The goofy, bug-eyed ghouls are more silly than scary and the doctor here is a sleep-deprived father, so his son must banish the monsters himself.
