Title: A Monster for Tea

Publisher: Fernwood & Hedges Books

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition:New

About this title


The little girl was not afraid of the monster. In fact, she invited him to tea. The monster did not know what tea was. He only knew about eating people and animals and tearing apart buildings and breathing fire. Hardcover, 32 pages, color, large print, ages 4 through 8.


Kirkus ReviewWilliams crafts a fable about overcoming stereotypes and the benefits that result. The girl's friendship with the brute is illustrated through simple, appealing line drawings with highlights of color. Williams doesn't say if the monster changes his ways but lets the reader wonder along with the little girl, allowing for connection and interactions between young readers and the story. Little ones can decide for themselves if the little girl's kindness had a lasting effect, and teachers or caregivers can speak about the benefits of expecting the best from people (or monsters).

"A Monster for Tea" is an original, unusual fictional tale for children about a spunky little girl and a scary monster who tramples her flower garden.  Expressive, minimalist drawings in black and white with touches of pale color express the unusual tone of "A Monster for Tea" perfectly, creating a unique humane reform experience in compassion for young children with open minds and excellent imaginations.
