Leonardo is truly a terrible monster-terrible at being a monster that is. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to frighten anyone. Determined to succeed, Leonardo sets himself to training and research. Finally, he finds a nervous little boy, and scares the tuna salad out of him! But scaring people isn't quite as satisfying as he thought it would be. Leonardo realizes that he might be a terrible, awful monster-but he could be a really good friend.

Baker & Taylor
Losing all hope in his ability to scare people, which is sorely lacking, Leonardo, who is terrible at being a monster, discovers a nervous little boy who seems to be the perfect candidate for him to practice on.

Leonardo is just hopeless at all of the things that monsters are supposed to do but it turns out that he makes a great friend. Themes - Friendship, Monsters

I loved reading this almost as much as my 2 year old and 4 year old enjoyed listening to it. I liked the use of white space and the large pages and how the flow changes as you read it.

Poor Leonardo... No matter how hard he tries, he just can't scare anyone. But, he's decided to find the scardiest kid around and he's going to scare the tuna salad right out of him! LOL. My son loved this one when he was 4.
