Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Billy Monster was born, his father said, "My son is going to grow up to be the Worst Monster in the World." However, Billy's sister Hazel proved that she was the Worst Monster in a way that older siblings can cheer. "A monstrously wonderful a addition to any picture book collection."--School Library Journal.

Synopsis:

Since the Baby Monster arrived, no one notices big sister Hazel's talents. When Billy wins the Worst Monster Baby in the World contest, that's the final straw--Hazel must prove that she is the Worst Monster in the World. Full-color.

About the Author

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.
