My Mega Mon­ster­pe­dia is a clever and amus­ing look at ev­ery­day fears and an­noy­ances and the mon­sters that cause them. Aimed at chil­dren ages six and up, the book gives chil­dren a way to name and then man­age their fears while at the same time mak­ing them laugh. Col­or­ful and very cre­ative il­lus­tra­tions of fifty dif­fer­ent mon­sters per­son­ify a large range of pos­si­ble nui­sances—from a stuffy nose to a thun­der­storm to lice. Each mon­ster is pre­sented with strengths and weak­nesses and, most im­por­tantly, ex­actly what a child must do to get rid of it.
