Morris is a green, googly-eyed monster. He loves zombie bowling, rain storms, and anything gross or disgusting.
Simone is a cute little girl. She loves sunshine, flowers and cute puppy dogs.
When Simone ends up in Morris’s world she is the scary one. The monsters run away from her horrifying cuteness and her happy smile. In this monster-world everything is topsy-turvey.
Despite his initial terror of Simone, she and Morris end up as best friends and the unlikely pair have a host of hilarious adventures.
Kids will be able to relate to each story. There is school, Halloween, Christmas, sports and much more.
These comics were originally published in French and luckily have now been translated into English.
The illustrations in this beginner’s graphic novel are sheer perfection. The monsters still look like monsters, but they are not really scary. This will draw the children’s attention without causing nightmares or fear.
The colors are bright, vibrant and bold and the illustrations will make fans of not only the young children, but also their older siblings, and even their parents.
Each page in this book is its own story, which is told in 4 to 6 comic panels. This format makes this book terrific for bedtime reading since parents can easily read a few pages per night and pick the book up again the next night.
This is an amazing book to introduce children to the joy and wonder of graphic novels without having to worry about non-age-appropriate content.
I rate this visual treat as 5 out of 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 and I highly recommend it to children of any age from 4 to 99.
