A Monster Wrote Me A Letter - Nick Bland

A Monster Wrote Me A Letter
Nick Bland
ISBN 9780439935739

Nick Bland has created a wonderful book about understanding and being different in this fun book. The artwork has a look and feel reminiscent of M.C. Escher - a classic pen and ink style, predominantly black, white and grey, except for selective color to highlight or contrast. The story is just as wonderful. A young boy receives a letter from a monster, and decides to write back. The monster, upon receiving the letter, realizes that the boy got the letter not his cousin Fred, who lives under the boy's bed, so he decides to meet the boy. Both the boy and the monster try to make the other welcome. The boy spooks up the place and the monster cleans up. They have a great day together. It is a fantastic book for children of all ages.
