With Christmas on it's way, My Monster Burrufu by Alberto Corral would make for an excellent stocking stuffer or gift for your child! This is an enchanting story about an outgoing, unique and friendly little girl who tries with all of her might to befriend a very reclusive monster, who just wants to be left alone in his lonely attic to write his stories and eat stolen chocolate chip cookies. The book is filled with beautifully drawn black and white illustrations.
This story has a very important central moral: don't judge someone by how they look; it's what's inside that counts. It's a kind of "don't judge a monster by his fur" type of moral, which is applicable to children and adults alike.
