Spike, the Mixed Up Monster by Susan Hood

Summary from Dust Jacket: Meet Spike! He's pointy. He's scary. He has a spiky crown. He has mean teeth. He is a bigger than a lily pad. What will it take for Spike to make a friend?

What I thought: A fun book! I love that it's bilingual. Although I wish there was a pronunciation guide. The illustrations are lovely--bright and colorful. I can't wait to use this title in my monsters story time in October. I think it will pair well with Leonardo, the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems.

Story Time Themes: Bilingual, Monsters, Lizards
