The Monster Who Lost His Mean
Everyone knows that the M in “monster” stands for MEAN. But what happens when a monster can’t be mean any more? Is he still a monster at all?
One young monster’s attempts to live up to his name go hilariously awry as he discovers—with a little help from new friends—that it’s not what you’re called but who you are that counts.
The Monster can’t be mean anymore and the other monsters bully him. He has no friends, but the kids are his friends. He likes his new friends because they like him.
I really enjoyed this book. Dino wanted to buy it at his daycare book fair a year ago and I’m glad he did. The monster lost his “M” which means he can no longer be mean. Instead he finds himself doing kind things for others and it makes him happy. He sees his former friends, the other monsters, as bullies and thinks he’s alone. Then he is surprised by his new friends, who like him just the way he is and name his Onster!
Really like the message about bullying and friendships. The illustrations are captivating and draw you in.
