Leonardo the Terrible Monster By Mo Willems

“He will scare the tuna salad out of you!”

Leonardo is truly a terrible monster – terrible at being a monster, that is. Despite his best efforts, he can’t seem to frighten anyone…until he finds the perfect little boy.

This is one of my favourite of Mo Willems’ picture books. I love them all, but for some reason this one always springs to mind. I like the size of it, the way the type fills the cover, I like the pastel colours of the pages, I like the huge amounts of empty space with a small illustration of Leonardo in the corner. The story makes me smile with every read.
