Product Description

I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll is an entertaining picture book to read near Halloween or with a monster-themed book study. This picture book companion is filled with comprehension activities, vocabulary practice, a directed monster drawing, and writing prompts.

I Need My Monster Book Summary: One night when Ethan checks under his bed for his monster, Gabe, he finds a note from him instead: “Gone fishing. Back in a week." Ethan knows that without Gabe’s familiar nightly scares he doesn't stand a chance of getting to sleep. So Ethan interviews potential substitutes to see if they've got the right equipment for the job—pointy teeth, sharp claws, and a long tail—but none of them proves scary enough for Ethan. When Gabe returns sooner than expected from his fishing trip, Ethan is thrilled. It turns out that Gabe didn't enjoy fishing because the fish scared too easily.
