That's Not the Monster We Ordered (Hardback)

By Black, Tara
Illustrated by Fairgray, Richard
Illustrated by Jones, Terry

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 expe...rience, 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? That s Not the Monster We Ordered is a fun twist on household pets but full of enough silly antics to warrant rereads. As in Gorillas in Our Midst and My Grandpa Is a Dinosaur, Fairgray and Jones have blended imagination into the real world, creating an entertaining story everyone will enjoy.
