About this title:

Synopsis: When a scary monster comes to planet Earth, no one is sure whether he will eat a rock, a daisy, a tree, or a certain little girl, who offers the monster a banana to eat instead.

From School Library Journal: Pres-Grade 2. This book has a simple story line that will appeal to preschoolers. A monster comes to Earth via a rocket and searches for food. Root builds in an element of suspense when, after tasting a dandelion, a rock, and a tree, the hungry monster spots a little girl and considers eating her. Comic relief is quickly provided when the child thrusts a banana in the alien's face and it consumes the fruit, peel and all. The pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork is bright and colorful but not exceptional. The monster, a wacky looking creature complete with two-toned scales and wings, is expressive and playful rather than frightening. It is the focus throughout and often the only thing on the page aside from the text. The girl is nondescript. When background scenes are provided, they are minimal in detail allowing the eye to stay with the central action. The Hungry Monster is not a primary pick but is an additional selection for story times and beginning readers.?Dawn Ibey, Vancouver Public Library, Canada
