Ever since Angus was a wee baby monster, living below the surface of Loch Ness, his parents tried to teach him to be a proper monster. But as Angus grows bigger, he gets sloppy. Puggy-nit shells (peanuts) are piling up; his grottie (dirty) laundry is in a heap; tatties (potatoes) litter the floor. Itand#8217;s a mountain of a mess! And as Angusand#8217;s trash heap grows, pushing him away from the comforts of home, a surprising Loch Ness sighting of his own awaits on the surface of the lake.... and#160; Fans of Hooway for Wodney Watand#160;and Tacky the Penguin will laugh-out-loud, as the hilarious team of Lester and Munsinger share a rollicking reminder of the virtues of a clean room!
"The latest in Yolen and Teague's long-running series features dinosaurs testing boundaries then making amends: 'You woke in the morning in such a bad mood,' a human mom reproaches her colossal neovenator, who grumpily rubs his eyes in his bed. But later, an ouranosaurus with a crenellated red fan along his spine exits the house, blowing a kiss to his adoring dad: 'But then you blew kisses and waved from the door. I love you, I love you, my dinosaur.' Kids should relate to the dinosaurs' mood swings and take heart in the notion that love conquers all. Up to age 4."
