Each page of this book builds up the face of a big green monster. The first page is all black except two big yellow eyes cut out of the paper. It proclaims that the big green monster has two big yellow eyes. Each page adds a colorful body part like a blue green nose, or purple hair, until a big monster face appears on the page! Then the page says that the monster is not scary and he should go away! Each page proceeds to get rid of one of the monster’s colorful features until the page is completely black!

The pictures are really fun, and include cut out for each shape, which adds even more fun for kids. They are bright and have clear bold lines placed on top of a black background which makes it easy for the younger kids to see. It is also a great way to teach toddlers colors, strange shapes, and to not be afraid of monsters!
