Maddie's Monster DadBook - 2011
Maddie loves it when her father plays scary games with her, but when he is too busy with work she turns into a "Maddie Scientist" and builds herself a monster dad that she thinks will be more fun.
Maddie loves monsters. She loves watching monster movies, eating monster cereal, and drawing monster pictures. She also loves doing things with her dad. But lately her dad has been very busy with work, so Maddie decides to use her Build-a-Beast kit to create a Monster Dad that is never too busy to play. It turns out there are some things that monsters can't do, and maybe a Monster Dad isn't as special as the real thing. The illustrations in gouache and pencil contain clever, fun details that children (and adults) will love.
