Leonardo is truly a terrible monster-terrible at being a monster that is. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to frighten anyone. Determined to succeed, Leonardo sets himself to training and research. Finally, he finds a nervous little boy, and scares the tuna salad out of him! But scaring people isn't quite as satisfying as he thought it would be. Leonardo realizes that he might be a terrible, awful monster-but he could be a really good friend.

I have a class of 20 four year olds from diverse backgrounds. As a school, we are 100% free and reduced lunch. Many of the children do not have books in their homes and therefore their only exposure to literature is what I make available in the classroom.
