Monsters Never Get Haircuts

by Marie-Hélène Versini, Vincent Boudgourd
This funny and quirky picture book celebrates children's imagination.

The narrator of this book knows exactly what monsters are like: they never brush their hair or go to the dentist; they don’t wear glasses or play the piano or put on their shoes . . . Monsters don’t know they are monsters. They don’t do this and they don’t do that, and do you know why? Because monsters don’t exist!
[T]he spare text is effective, allowing readers to linger on Boudgourd’s wonderfully beastly oil paint and pencil illustrations . . . . This look at monsters is fun, original, and even a bit soothing.” - Kirkus -
