    Hmm... I'm beginning to wonder if when these books were translated into English if the publisher mixed up the numerical order of these books. According to the publishing page, this is the second book in these cute Monster series and Monster Christmas was the first... well I have to think its the other way around. In this book, you get to meet Kriss before he was created and why he was created. In Monster Christmas, they just give you a brief history about how Kriss came to be. So, obviously the Hmm...

So, obviously the books are not in the correct order. Anyway, I enjoyed this one far more. The entire book was one cohesive storyline that made sense together. The first one I didn't like because it felt so random to me. The illustrations are really adorable and the storyline was fun and witty. So, unfortunately the follow up of Monster Christmas was not so good, but I really enjoyed this one!

    I’m really drawn to this particular book. I love that the family plagued by monsters are chickens, a device that surprisingly makes the translation from French to English well. The story is particularly engaging. While the parents start off as boring, they become integral characters in the story, making it a family adventure story. They become funny and human, without losing their authority as parents, a rather nice depiction. Unfortunately this is often unlikely to see in children’s literature.

The art is innovative, combining child-drawn monsters with Trondheim’s cheesy cartoons. The mix of media creates threatening villains that are not too scary. The layout is a little interesting too- Trondheim doesn’t use panels but instead separated each vignette with space, which is in this case colored a neutral olive that is oddly comforting and yet puts the focus on the white chicken heads and the monsters that plague them. The scenery is very simple, often just a floor, keeping the focus on the characters and avoiding the over-stimulation of other graphic novel illustrators. The colors are a little muted and flat, adding to the simplistic design and extra lines are avoided as shading and only used upon occasion to indicate movement. Overall, one of my most favorite recent graphic novels.

    This is a creative graphic novel about drawings of monsters coming to life. The narrative is entertaining and the illustrations are humorous, but I just didn't get into this story. It felt a bit flat. Still, since we borrowed Monster Graphic Novels: Monster Christmas, too, I'll give the series another try. Our girls thought the monsters were fun and loved the idea of drawings becoming alive. They will likely want to read all of the books in this series that we can find at our local library.

    A graphic novel for kids--what fun! I really liked it, and so did my three year old. Even though it is on the longer side (for a three year old), he sat in rapt attention for the whole book. And I loved the monsters drawn by children, which look a lot like the monsters my three year old draws for me.

    clever idea--the lack of speech bubbles takes some getting used to, but it works for the kind of story Trondheim's telling.
