Monster Friends | Preview
We have a fun treat for you this morning: A preview of Kaeti Vandorn’s Monster Friends, which just came out this week from RH Graphic. The book is tailored for early readers, ages 4-8, a graphic novel category that is rapidly expanding these days. Here’s the blurb:
Reggie’s plan is to spend the whole summer brooding over his latest adventure gone wrong. But his friendly and curious neighbor, Emily, won’t let him sit alone and unhappy in his house forever! Despite their differences, these two monsters make the perfect pair of explorers. And with a map to make, a beach party to plan, and a sea monster to find, Reggie will have to learn to talk about his feelings and let new friends in!
Vandorn is also the author of Crabapple Trouble, which RH Graphic published last summer. Monster Friends is available now, and our preview will get you started on the story. Enjoy!
