This is an older book by Mo Willems, but just as delightful as always! Leonardo the monster has a terrible problem — he isn’t scary. So he searches for the perfect child to scare. I love all the research he does before he finds Sam, the perfect scare candidate. Sam ends up being a lot more to Leonardo than just a child to scare, and I love the turning point in their relationship.
The illustrations and text are a little more detailed than Mo’s other books, but the backgrounds are plain pages and you can definitely see Mo’s style. This story has a great message about friendship and being comfortable with who you are.
