Review - When Monsters Get Lonely

When Monsters Get Lonely
BY: Maha Huneidi
ISBN: 9781461063070
Pages: 32
Reviewed by Billy Burgess

Hannah shivers as she clings to her bed covers in “When Monsters Get Lonely”.  She’s afraid when her mother shuts off the light, the monster under the bed will come for her. Everything is fine when she leaves the lamp on, but there is a sudden blackout. Her parents and grandma explain to here that there are no such thing as monsters. Hannah is still scared as she returns to her room, but is ready to confront her monster.

I recall being afraid of monsters under the bed and the boogeyman in the closet when I was a kid. In “When Monsters Get Lonely” young Hannah, who wants to be a film director, is afraid of the creature that comes out when the lights go out. Young readers will be able to relate to Hannah and her situation as she bravely confronts her fears. The illustrations are wonderfully drawn, and at times the drawings are a little spooky. It  is a great read for kids, especially with Halloween just around the corner.

  3. This definitely sounds like a great read for "Gigi Storytime" here at my house (I have two grandbebes here right now, and they love it when I read to them!) Even my own 11-year-old Bebe Boy gets scared in the dark sometimes, so I think he would enjoy it, too! Hopping over from Cym's party ... I'm a new follower!
