      Any preschooler can relate to the birds in Ten Birds Meet a Monster The birds see a mysterious, spooky shadow in the next room Instead of being afraid, they attempt to scare it away The ink drawings depict realistic, yet still cute birds and their antics I love the high contrast The text is sparse, yet introduces many new words to describe the bird s characters This book would make a nice read aloud, even for large groups as the pictures are big enough.

    3. Sean says:

      I love this one Some lean, fantastical storytelling in children s books.

      The ten birds that first appeared in the award winning Ten Birds return to encounter a scary menace Without words, the birds fear of this monster is evident what can they do The first bird devises a polka dot rival but this does not remove the beast A second bird joins the first and using the clothes scattered about the floor, the bird hopes to create a rival monster Alas, still no success eliminating the monster Each time, a bird joins the group and they create a larger menacing creature The m [...]

      This is a treat for the imagination What kind of monster is it that the birds have found What can they do to scare it away Using spare clothing that is lying around, they try to disguise themselves as fearsome beasts, but the monster remains The names of the beasts they invent sound like something from Willie Wonka a terrifying crackatoothus or frightening vipper snapper, for example And there is some wonderful vocabulary to describe the birds They are inventive, resourceful, attentive each gets [...]

      Ten birds meet a scary monster in their wanderings Can they create their own creature scary enough to chase the monster away Cybele Young uses pen and ink drawings to tell the delightful tale of ten little birds who are making their way in the world when they come across a scary monster Using discard pieces of clothing, the birds come up with their own monsters to try to get rid of the one standing in their path Young s use of such names as Vicious Polka dactyl and Gnashing Grapplesaurus brings [...]

    11. Andréa says:

      A cute and clever counting book Kids will have fun guessing what the monster is and watching the birds turn themselves into different scary creatures In each spread, both the birds working together to scare away the monster and the remaining birds can be counted, for extra counting opportunities and a chance to work on addition subtraction The pictures are not in full color, which works to the story s advantage, as the monster would be less intimidating if everything else was bright and colorful [...]

    12. Vidya Tiru says:

      Younger readers will enjoy how the birds come up with innovative ways to create monsters when they meet one that scares them and also how one bird finally overpowers their monster And what they do when they discover who what their monster is This will definitely encourage kids to, like the birds, use everyday items for play and fun, rather than needing toys I especially love the ink sketches here.

    13. Emilia P says:

      Ahhh I love you ten birds Such whimsical yet detailed illustrations, such suspense, such a gleeful ending Cybele, I think you are one of the best artists of this generation of picture book illustrators I am glad the ten birds are becoming a thing I hope there will be , because they are a joy to behold Thanks Kids Can NetGalley, for the chance to check this new one out

    14. Destiny Dawn Long says:

      Full review at my blog destinydawnlong.wordpress This title has earned 5 out of 5 stars Counting books can get tedious so if I have to read one, it should at least be beautiful and original Young delivered Engaging text, exceptional illustrations and excellent design it s got all the elements of a great picture book.

    15. Hamster says:

      Got this from NetGalley.I wanted to give it two stars, but my kids laughed at the end and said they liked it a lot Grumble Basically I was ready for it to be done after the fourth page.This is one of those where the illustrations could have made all the difference Unfortunately they didn t.

    16. Carol says:

      Gorgeous illustrations depict birds trying to frighten a monster away with various scary creations of their own The tenth and final one might just be the perfect person to banish the terrifying creature.

    17. Louise Bendall says:

      Cyb le Young s Ten Birds have gone from crossing a river to confronting a monster in this story Once again, incredible black white artwork helps to tell the tale This cute story also serves to alleviate fears of any monsters who may be hiding around the corner.

    18. Rebecca Ann says:

      I really liked the grayscale pencil illustrations in this book and the strange mix of modern and old fashioned style The story itself was pretty unremarkable, however I m not sure what a child would make of it.

    19. Rosa says:

      A group of birds think they see a monster so they use clothes to turn themselves into a monster and try and frighten it away Only the tenth bird, easily distracted is able to figure out what s really going on through his explorations An interesting mix of creepy and cute.

    20. Ruby says:

      Wonderful illustrations deadly boring story And I m not sure really young kids, who are just learning to count to 10 presumably who this book is intended for would understand what the monster was at the end But then again, I was a kid too long ago to know ha ha ha

    21. Gianna Mosser says:

      The playful illustrations are enough to recommend this book, and the names of the monsters got some real giggles Very basic book though, which is fine Not enough to be one of three at bedtime though, as I got some pushback on that.

    22. Kristina Jean Lareau says:

      Gorey inspired pen and ink illustrations engage the imagination in this unusual counting book The fake monster names are ridiculously fun and the ending offers a little surprise Probably better for older children since the black and white will not lure in the very young.

    23. Annie Payne says:

      This book was so much fun All of the kids loved guessing what the monster was, and they loved all of the silly monster names Beautiful artwork, great use of vocabulary, and a great book to incorporate discussion into storytime

    24. Katie says:

      This book made me antsy I just want to know WHAT THE MONSTER WAS Perhaps I will have patience one day maybe when I grow up.

    25. Ryan says:

      4 Stars This excellently illustrated children s book is about playing with shadows and that seeing should not always be believing.

    26. Alison says:

      The birds are at it again, one by one they try to become something that will scare away the monster in the closet, which is really just the shadow of a glove.

    27. Heather Gunnell says:

      Staff PickIt s a counting book that feels like a story than a straight forward 1,2,3 kind of book It s also pretty funny watching the birds come up with all kinds of creatures to scare away the monster.
