Sesame Street's own beloved character Grover stars in this "Big Little Golden Book." He plays host, urging the reader not turn to the next page because each one brings you closer to the monster at the end. Grover uses ropes to try to tie the pages back, a brick wall to stop the page from turning, and his urgent pleas to convince you to stop at the page you are on. Of course, children will be even more eager to dive further into this book, curiosity driving them wild to see the monster. This is such a fun book that they won't even realize that they are reading. Perfect for an enthusiastic adult to share with a new reader, the text is full of energy and words seem to jump out from the pages. As far as the monster at the end of the book goes, monster phobes need not fear. 2004 (orig. 1971), Golden Books, Ages 3 to 5.
