In the lives of busy families, reading aloud can easily drop off the radar. Read Aloud 15 MINUTES is an organization that challenges parents to pick up a book and read to your child at least 15 minutes a day.
Monster on the Hill (Top Shelf Productions, 2013) by cartoonist Rob Harrell (Adam @ Home, Big Top), is a blast to read - a book for kids of all ages, from children through adults, and will make a welcome addition to any library or classroom.
Monster on the Hill is simply - fun. The characters are awesome, the illustrations are complement the tone, plot and characters, and dialogue is fun and the twists and turns are pure, unadulterated fun!
I gave a copy of this book to a (very) reluctant reader and watched him sit a VERY long time, reading through this, smiling and reacting. It was a joy to watch.
