What a delightful way to pique the interest and engage young children in a discussion about New York City. In the style of "Where's Waldo?", children are encouraged to look for eight monsters, one on each page of the book. "New York City Monsters", text by Anne Paradis and illustrated by Lucile Danis Drouot takes us on a tour of Times Square with its bright city lights, plethora of visitors, double decker tour buses and traditional hot dog stands. We view dinosaur skeletons at the American Museu ...more

New York City Monsters, is a fabulous book by Anne Paradis. It is a search and find book, so on each page you have numerous monsters to discover, hidden within the illustrations, (it does tell you on each page how many monsters you need to find).

Throughout the book you get to visit, Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Rockefeller Center Ice Rink, Thanksgiving Day Parade, plus many more places of interest.

The book is filled will beautiful, brightly coloured illustrations drawn by Lucile Danis Drouot.

Monsters in New York City!? Yep, and they just happen to like all the same destinations as us humans. This book is a great travel guide for kids. It makes New York City interesting and fun. Great illustrations and pretty well hidden monsters. Not to mention it is an interactive book that helps kids be more perceptive as they try to find all the monsters.

Note: I was given this book by the publisher. In no way does that affect my opinions.
This was cute, and would be perfect for introducing NYC's highlights to children, especially if they were going to be visiting soon. The monsters were all unique and oftentimes funny - but I just wish there was an answer key, or hints, included at the end - as there were actually a few monsters that I couldn't find!

Adorable search and find book with some of the Big Apple's most famous landmarks. I must admit some of the cute little monsters were hard to find! Great activity for kids who have been to NYC or are going there.

This was a sweet book in which the reader has to spot monsters hidden in different locations around New York City. I enjoyed the illustrations although I would have preferred if the book was longer, therefore including more locations. That said, the big tourist locations were all mentioned.

Locations and events included: The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, American Museum of Natural History, Central Park Zoo, 5th Avenue, the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade,

Bright landscapes of Noo Yawk are interspersed with info bubbles and monsters for you to find in a Where’s Waldo fashion. Some are pretty tricky, like the one dressed in a business suit on the street. Toward the end I missed some, much to my everlasting chagrin; some three-year-old is bound to find it and make my embarrassment complete.

One of the reasons that I like these books, is that they have a format. They always include places to see animals, places to go shopping, something of historical significance, a type of museum, and then a culturally significant area. They are all the same, but at the same time they are as unique as the city that they are visiting.

Let me start by saying that the illustrations, especially the monsters, are absolutely adorable and spot on! The goal of the reader/ listener is to find 6-8 hidden monsters within the illustrations as each page spread explores one of New York City's famous landmarks.
Landmarks included in the text are the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, American Museum of Natural History, Central Park zoo, 5th Avenue shops, the Empire State building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Thanksgiving day parade floats, the ice

This book is a part of a series of travel books for children and what wonderful books they are!!! This series is a really cool concept making it fun for kids to learn about places to visit and interesting sights to see in a city while looking for monsters in each page of the book! Each page of the book mentions an attraction with an interesting fact or two about it; and your job (well, actually your child’s!) is to find the many monsters lurking on that page (but I competed with mine to find the ...more

New York City Monsters Anne Paradis This is absolutely an awesome book. The whole series is actually. The kids and I have read a few of the books from the series. The kids love finding all of the monsters on each page and I love that they get a lesson about things in each of the cities. These books are fun for the kids and the parents both.
This book is about exploring New York City. All of the main sites are listed throughout the book. You get to see the Statue of Liberty, The empire State Buil

A whimsical exploration of some of New York's landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Central Park Zoo, and the American Museum of Natural History. A good children's book for both independent exploration and interaction with a more experienced reader.
