Growl is a little purple monster who lives alone in a big castle at the end of Eucalyptus Drive. Growl likes to hop and skip, and jump, and sing.
But best of all, Growl loves to growl! She loves to growl inside and out.
She loves to growl all morning, and even at night.

One afternoon Growl sneaks across her garden and growls over the
neighbor s fence! When they telephone the police, a special rule is
made and Growl is banned from doing what she loves best. But what
will Growl do? How will Growl get her growl back?

About the Author:

Judy Horacek is an Australian cartoonist, illustrator and writer. She has worked for many newspapers and a multitude of community groups, unions, small magazines and good causes and has published a number of cartoon collections. Recently she has also begun creating children s picture books.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Tomi Ungerer's Crictor the snake tied up the robber until police arrived. William Kotzwinkle's Walter the Farting Dog grossed out the robber. In this book, Growl, a small purple, toothy monster, scares the robber with her mighty sound and saves the day. Growl lives in a big castle at the end of an otherwise ordinary street. She growls all the time. It's just what she does. One day she lets out an extra loud growl, just as her neighbors are having afternoon tea. They are appropriately startled, tables and chairs are upset, and their tea is ruined. They call the police. Growl is forbidden to growl. She becomes listless and depressed. She cries all day. Late one night she sees a robber creeping across their yard. She lets out an ear-shattering roar that sends him fleeing. When the neighbors realize what she's done, they apologize and invite the little monster to tea. The cartoon illustrations done in gouache are outlined in black. The volume and intensity of each growl is shown by the size and the placement of the word. While the pages are colorful and the text is always easily visible, this title is not a necessary purchase.—Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
