Book Description

5 Jan 2012

Featuring the only Monster in Cutesville, LOVE MONSTER is a wonderfully warm and witty look at how sometimes, when you least expect it, love finds you… From a phenomenal picture book talent.

It can be tough being the only funny-looking Monster in Cutesville, but this Monster is not one to hang around and feel sorry for himself, so he’s off – out into the big wide world to look for someone to love him.
He looks high, he looks low and he looks everywhere in-between, but it’s only when he’s just about to give up that he finally finds what he is looking for…

Featuring an instantly charming main character who will appeal to children and adults alike, LOVE MONSTER is a warm and witty tale about the power of taking action from a terrific talent new to the HarperCollins list.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Monster :) 9 Jan 2012
By carly
Love Monster is such a lovely little book, we really loved reading it.

Monster is a little bit different, he's not cute and fluffy, and living in Cutesville that can be pretty tough. He is unloved, so he goes in search of someone to love him, for just being himself. He searches high and low, with no luck. I just wanted to pick this lonely little fellow up an give him a big hug. But in the end love finds him, when he least expects it.

The illustrations in this book are wonderful, they are bold, bright, different and just really stand out of the page. Between the story and the illustrations, this book held my little one's (3) attention throughout, I kept hearing AWWW and poor Monster.

The lesson in this book is brilliant, it teaches you not to judge on looks, it's OK to be different and everybody deserves to be loved.

We received Love Monster in the post this morning and we have already read it four times together, so this book is definitely a winner.

Thank-you Rachel Bright for putting together this lovely little book and thank-you to Harper Collins for sending it for review! We will be looking out for more works form Rachel Bright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Monster! 13 July 2012
I got given this for my birthday and I must say, it's a hit! Funny, warm, inspirational and charismatic, Love Monster should be on your bookcase, coffee table, wherever! It may look like a children's book but in reality it is lovely short story that tugs at anyone's heart-strings who has love in their life. Might I add, I am Twenty and I still get joy re-reading it... Good stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars So sweet 21 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We recently discovered Rachel Bright with our introduction to her books via What Does Daddy Do?

This book is a little bit short on words and length but this does very much fit in with the story i.e. a really sweet little story about finding love when you least expect it. Lovely illustrations complement the story beautifully. Both my children love it.

The end always makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Add it to your children's library, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab Book 2 Mar 2012
My 20 month old adores this book and asks for it every bedtime, and at naps. She calls the monster 'Bobo' and really gets into the bit about feeling sorry for him, stroking him etc. It's very simple, and the illustrations are expressive enough that even younger children such as mine would get something from it. Very cute!
