Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Stinky Stubb, Dirty Dugg, Gorbert, and Melvina, the craftiest crew of monsters ever to build a house. With hard hats and heavy machinery, these feisty fellas dig, dump, hammer, nail, and—after a surprise lunch of Mamas special monsteroni and cheese—they even squeeze in time for an afternoon snooze.
          With backhoes, bulldozers, and mud mounds galore, here is a book that young construction enthusiasts will want to dig into over and over again.

Review:

"Lund's (Dinosailors) rhyming story, about a team of ghoulish monsters who ride bulldozers and cranes, has just about everything a child could hope for, from fantastical characters to vehicles, from muck and mud to screams and shouts to 'monsteroni and cheese.' The plot is uncomplicated — a crew of monsters builds a 'Custom Prehaunted' house and then cleans up — and relayed with plenty of brio: 'Foreman Gorbert stomps over. He's huge and he's hairy./ He grunts out the orders and adds, 'Make it scary!' Neubecker's (Wow! School!) bright, digitally colored full-bleed pictures of the workmonsters — Dirty Dugg, Stinky Stubb, Gorbert and Melvina — are reminiscent of Maurice Sendak's Wild Things, but rendered in an electric palette. A monster mama serves lunch, reads a story and oversees naptime, then withdraws: this quartet, apparently, doesn't view tidying up as fiendish ('Without too much whining, they each do their share'). The fun extends to the endpapers, which feature monsters in construction machines. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
