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.
Reviews & Summaries
The monster in this book goes from scaring the tuna salad out of the kid to hugging the tuna salad out of the kid. It's a very sweet story, but really, how much tuna salad does this kid eat? Someone should tell his parents that tuna can contain a lot of mercury, and I'm not talking about Freddie.
Sparse drawings (very different from much of what we read these days!) and sweet story. The page where Sam just pours out all his woes is notable by way of contrast with all the rest.
