Kids read, listen, touch, play and interact with Ben as he tries to help his monster Gurk overcome his shyness, teaching him that sometimes it just takes a friend and a bit of confidence to turn things around.

Not just a story, the 8 games throughout “Even Monsters Are Shy” let the reader propel the action forward. Kids will target-shoot, bounce, dress-up, balance, juggle and more through not just the 8 games, but in the additional activities and surprises found on every page.

Features original music, sound effects, and a professional actor to bring the world of Monsters to life.

Part of the Even Monsters(TM) series that has earned multiple awards and accolades, including the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the Kirkus Reviews “Best of” pick, and more.

Brought to you by the same team that produced Zoo Train, Bug Games, Giggle Ghosts and Even Monsters Get Sick.
