Big Green Monster

Go Away,Big Green Monster! is a book of cut-out pages that page by page reveal a monster and then page by page make it disappear. The simple cuts and the bold colors appeal to both young children and old. It is as much of a  delight to read to groups of children as it is to just one child snuggled up on your lap.

Go Away, Big Green Monster! is ideal for story hour.There are always requests to Read it again!

Monsters often evoke fear but Ed Emberley has created a safe, lovable monster that obeys when asked to go away leading to a study of emotions and as study of what causes us to react to situations with laughter, excitment or fear.
