Monster School: (poetry Rhyming Books for Children, Poems about Kids, Spooky Books)

Kate Coombs (Author) Lee Gatlin (Illustrator)


Twilight's here. The death bell rings. Everyone knows what the death bell brings--it's time for class! You're in the place where goblins wail and zombies drool. (That's because they're kindergartners.) Welcome to Monster School. In this entertaining collection of poems, award-winning poet Kate Coombs and debut artist Lee Gatlin bring to vivid life a wide and playful cast of characters (outgoing, shy, friendly, funny, prickly, proud) that may seem surprisingly like the kids you know . . . even if these kids are technically monsters.
