US Kirkus Review » In a pop-up album that provides a strong argument for attaching parental-advisory labels, happy monsters rear up over a hill, spring from closet and cellar and burst out from under the bed to assure a pair of timorous, pajama-clad children that they're not really scary. Like fun they're not: Along with startling, in-your-face entrances, the shaggy tree and closet monsters flash tusks and claws, the cellar monster's head is topped with writhing vacuum-cleaner hoses and the gesticulating bed monster sports a gaping, froglike face. Though the text is less melodramatic - "The monster laughed, and his big green belly shook. 'I am a big fellow,' he said. 'But my friend the Closet Monster is smaller. You won't be afraid of him. Come on. I'll introduce you' " - and on the final spread children and creatures dance off in a yellow-brick-roadish line, this is likely to give unwary preschoolers heebie-jeebies - at least on the first run-through. Stick with Sesame Street's more lovable critters. (Pop-up picture book. 3-5) (Kirkus Reviews)
