Sky Pony Press: That's Not the Monster We Ordered


What a darling book!  I always look at children's books and say to myself, will my class love this?  Sure enough, this book was an instant hit!  Wonderful story, engaging illustrations...they loved it.

That's Not the Monster We Ordered by Tara Black, Richard Fairgray and Terry Jones is a fun, silly twist on household pets that children will want to read again and again.


The day the Turner family gets their very own monster is a momentous event in the neighborhood.  Everyone gathers for the occasion.  The monster can roar louder than a lion, leap down the stairs better than any Slinky, and eat grass so no one needs to mow.  Based on the Turners' experience, investing in a monster seems like a great idea! 

Except, the monster that shows up isn't the monster they ordered at all.  Their monster likes to pull pranks and paint murals, and when he eats grass, he gets gas!  He isn't a good baker and he smells!  Will the family return their defective monster?  Or will the monster find a way to win their love?


This is a fantastic book about unconditional love and acceptance.  This would make such a cute Christmas gift this year!  Available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the Sky Pony Press website.
