Two monsters react in a deplorably recognisable and unwelcoming way, when a strange third monster arrives in their idyll, by the sea. The alien says that his homeland was destroyed by an earthquake, and he needs a place to live - and he offers to make himself useful to them, if the two monsters let him stay. Having originally told him to go, they rethink, and make him do lots of necessary land clearing that they had been, too lazy to do themselves. Once he has done it, the horrible pair does tell him to go, and then watch in amazement as he dances back to his boat. The clever stranger has built himself his own personal little island, with the earth and plants they told him to clear away.

Book Review: Three Monsters by David McKee - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (24 Feb 2013)
Im not 100% sure what to make of the Three Monsters, Im sure there is a moral to the story somewhere.
The story is about two monsters living happy on a small island and then one day they see a boat with another monsters and he then asks if he can live there with him. The two monsters are quite liberal with their insults but the third monster has a plan and is quite clever.
The illustrations where a little child like and quite basic. However from a childs point of view they will find this book fun and enjoy it.
