The Monster Under the Bed is ghoulishly delightful children’s tale, written and illustrated by Regina Puckett. When a young boy, Jim, and his baby brother, Tim, move into the room upstairs, the long-time tenant from under the bed has much to complain about. Little Monster is greeted by a horde of smelly, dirty socks, dust bunnies, and the sounds of a child’s endless play. Little Monster does his best to sleep, but finds it almost impossible until he is rescued by a familiar face.

No matter how hard I try, I cannot stop smiling. The Monster Under the Bed is certainly different from all of the other monster stories I have ever read, and I found it to be a sheer delight from one page to the next. The frustration which shows on the face of Little Monster throughout was so easy to relate to, being such a neat-freak myself, but when the child proves to be more of a monster than the Little Monster could ever imagine being, it becomes a very ironic tale which is brought to a heartwarming, yet quite unexpected conclusion.

Regina Puckett’s wonderful story is ideal in showing a child that they can be little monsters too, yet are loved all the same. I thoroughly enjoyed Regina Puckett’s quirky adventure, and wholeheartedly recommend it to be read to children aged 3-6, as well as an ideal first-reader book for school children who love to smile at the irony life sometimes brings.
