From School Library Journal:

PreS-K-Yolen and Murphy are at it again. This time, their monsters engage in plenty of playground fun. Yolen's perfectly precise text, repetition, and rhyme make the story ideal for reading aloud to even the littlest monsters. These rainbow-hued beasts hopscotch, slide, and race around a park, but after eating "monster-sicles," some monsterly behavior leads to a lesson in saying "sorry." Murphy's tone-on-tone illustrations in warm greens, blues, and oranges give the creatures a fuzzy rather than menacing look. This blending of color may make the nuances of each page hard to pick out from a distance, but the technique lends itself to even more enjoyment one-on-one. Pair this title with Helen Ketteman's Goodnight, Little Monster (Marshall Cavendish, 2010) for a storytime even the wildest participants will enjoy.-Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, OHα(c) Copyright 2013.
