Monsters Eat Whiny Children (Bruce Eric Kaplan)

Monsters Eat Whiny Children
Bruce Eric Kaplan
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Fiction, YA Picture Book
**** (Good)

DESCRIPTION: When Henry and Eve go through a whiny phase, their dad warns them that monsters eat whiny children. They don't listen... until a monster grabs them and carries them away. Will they end up in a salad or a sandwich - or can they escape becoming a monster meal?

REVIEW: This is a fun cautionary tale, with a subject that parents might enjoy more than (potentially whiny) children. Adults in particular can relate to how hard it is to coordinate meal plans when everyone has to have their say. The illustrations are simple, but get the point across, and the story's amusing. It helped kill some down time at work, which was why I picked it up.
