No Monsters Here by Vard Freer is an adorable children’s book. A little boy asks his father if there are monsters everywhere they go. His father reassures him that there are no monsters each time he asks. Halfway through, the story switches to the perspective of a little monster that is afraid of humans. This time, the little monster’s dad reassures him that there are no monsters. Eventually, the little boy and the little monster come face to face! At first, they are both terrified, but then they learn that they have things in common and no real reason to be scared.
No Monsters Here made me smile! I have two little boys that are always so sure they’ve seen monsters hiding in dark corners and under beds. I’ve spent my fair share of time reassuring their fears, and this book was perfect for us to read together. My three-year-old loved the illustrations and was engaged with searching for the hidden monsters on each page. The storyline was simple enough for him to pay attention and not get distracted. My six-year-old thought the story was funny and liked that the boy and the monster became friends in the end. I loved the message of the book — once we learn about things, we no longer need to fear them. Vard Freer has created a wonderful children’s book full of cute and colorful illustrations. I would recommend it to any parent with little ones that are worried about monsters.
