This book was based on a tale I used to tell my oldest son when he was supposed to be going to bed as a young boy, but would continuously get out of bed for different reasons.

Where Do Monsters Hide? by Terri Kelleher is a fun story for children. It is written in a poetic way and beautifully illustrated with bold bright colours. It tells the story of little Edward and how he was ever so curious. His mother told him that monsters will only come if a child is naughty and then to monster land you will go. Edward was full of questions for one so young. What he really wanted to know was where the monsters hid and this book takes him on a journey of discovery. In the end, Edward must decide if he wants to play by the rules and do things the correct way ... or not! Otherwise he might be taken to monster land and be fed on a diet of sand and worms.

Terri Kelleher tells a lovely story in Where Do Monsters Hide? I liked the way in which the author introduced rhyme throughout the book. The plot was clever and very funny. All children have questions about monsters under the bed, but this book questioned where they lived and what they did. Children would find this book exciting and fun with the bold illustrations and the unique storyline. Each different monster that was displayed seemed to have its own individual character. As a reader, I was transported between the pages and it was exciting. I would recommend this book for its amazing story as well as the message behind it. I am sure that after reading this book there will be many more well behaved children.
