The Monster in the BackpackBook - 2006
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Gr 1-2-Annie's new backpack has pink and blue flowers, a zipper, and a monster inside. She is startled and frightened when she first discovers the creature, but summons the courage to look at it again and learns that it has eaten most of her lunch and doesn't like to be alone. She keeps the backpack at her desk, where the monster leaves chewed gum in her boot and shreds her homework to make confetti for an "ANNIE-IS-GREAT PARADE." This warmhearted gesture wins the girl's heart, and she refuses an offer to trade for a friend's sedate green backpack. The zany story is written in simple, clear language and is supported with bold, digital cartoon art. The text is a tad longer than usual easy-reader fare, but the school setting and the endearing orange monster make it an acceptable addition.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI (c) Copyright 2010.
