Little Puppy and the Big Green Monster


Little Puppy and the Big Green Monster
By Mike Wohnoutka
Holiday House, 2014. Picture Book.

Little Puppy goes looking for a friend to play with and comes across grumpy Monster. Little Puppy mistakes Monster’s actions: when Monster ignores him, Little Puppy thinks they are playing hide and seek, when Monster throws Little Puppy’s ball away, Little Puppy thinks they are playing catch, and when Monster walks away from Little Puppy, Little Puppy thinks they are playing tag. At the end of the day though, Little Puppy and Monster become true friends. Few words and cheerful illustrations make this a staff pick.
