Love Monster is a slightly hairy monster trying to fit in with the cuddly residents of Cutesville. But as it turns out, it's hard to fit in with the cute and the fluffy when you're a googly-eyed monster. And so, Love Monster sets out to find someone who will love him just the way he is. His journey is not easyhe looks high, low, and even middle-ish. But as he soon finds out, in the blink of a googly eye, love can find you when you least expect it.

You might have noticed that everyone loves kittens, and puppies and bunnies. You know, cute, fluffy things, remarks the chatty narrator of Love Monster (FSG, 32 pages, $16.99), a winning picture book by Rachel Bright. The world's affection for cuteness makes it tough for the funny-looking, slightly hairy title character who yearns for love and acceptance.

With the Monster, as with many a lonely soul, love arrives when he least expects it in this ultimately happy excursion for 2- to 5-year-olds. The Wall Street Journal

...Bright has a brisk but sympathetic voice that's appealingly British, and her visual pacing is impeccable. Like the monster itself, this story wears its heart very visibly. Publishers Weekly
