Children's Corner: Crankenstein

Crankenstein was from this month's Scholastic order.  Although it appears to be Halloween themed, it's really an all-year-round book about children with "cranky pants" as we call them in our house.  It's a cute interpretation of all the times we see the monster in our little sweethearts.  Dan Santat's artwork is phenomenal and it helps to find the humor in each situation.

I think this works for a wide range of ages.  It's a great way to look at behavior without dwelling on it... and talk about how everyone is cranky sometimes.

...I'm pretty sure I qualify as a Crankenstein before my morning coffee too.

I am going to have to find this one. I think mine would like it.
