Publisher Comments:

Irrepressible Stewart the monster is back, and he has big news: He's going camping in five days! But if he could just change the clocks, build a time machine, or make this book move faster, he could go camping NOW. Of course, Stewart's parents know that good things come to those who wait – and eventually Stewart will learn that, too.

In this hilarious follow-up to This Monster Needs a Haircut, Bethany Barton channels her inner preschooler and shows readers that even the most exuberant, enthusiastic, in-the-moment monsters can be persuaded to wait. Eventually.

Synopsis:

Many adults name this book as their favorite Little Golden Book. Generations of kids have interacted with lovable, furry old Grover as he begs the reader not to turn the page—for fear of a monster at the end of the book. “Oh, I am so embarrassed,” he says on the last page . . . for, of course, the monster is Grover himself!

This all-time favorite is now available as a Big Little Golden Book—perfect for lap-time reading.

A timeless classic with a great reminder that we are our own worst enemies when we let fear and worry hold us back. Introduce your kids to it, but stick a copy in with high school or college graduation gifts, too, as it's a good message for all ages. I keep a copy on my bookshelf at work for quick reference!
