Told in the voice of a little girl, this delightful book takes a fun look sibling rivalry. When a new baby arrives, the little narrator isn't so excited.

A little girl gets a Little Monster from her mom, but the Little Monster is causing quite a bit of trouble.

The use of watercolors really helps to create the appearance of texture and realistic features in the characters. One of the first things I noticed was the wrinkles on the dad’s forehead and how real they looked. Another thing that looked so real was the texture that the little monster seems to have. The stripes that the illustrator has included on him makes him look like you could pet him

This book is a reminder for me about when my brother and sister were born. It's about a girl who gets a little monster for a present becuase her mom is having a baby. At first I thought they gave her the monster so she wouldn't feel left out with all the attention the baby was going to receive. After I read it I thought it was about the little monster of jealousy that we all have inside of us when something big changes. In the end it all worked out and they were happy again.

A little girl's world is turned upside down with the arrival of a baby brother. But, it's so much easier to misbehave when you have a little monster to blame it on!

All right illustrations.

About jealousy when a new baby enters the house, and how an older sister comes to appreciate her younger brother more (and so does the monster :-)
