Monster Monster

Monster Monster Ad

MONSTER MONSTER is a children’s picture book about the monster under the bed, the ogre snake that squishes toys and the troll that eats little boys. A fun poem for kids that delves into the monstrous imagination of a child, that place where the closet monster really does exist. This is book 6 in the Rhyme for Young Readers Series by QuickTurtle Books®.

Sweet Peas

Heavily scented warm
summer air draws in
buzzing bees eagerly
seeking precious nectar.

Sweet peas swarm up
netting on the old shed wall
