There Was An Old Monster is an amusing tale of a beast's literal appetite for life.

This books is especially recommended for parents who are tired of children's books with white backgrounds and muted colors--the combination of black background and bold illustrations are surprisingly soothing for parents (who may be worn out by Day-Glo hued illustrations), yet stimulating enough to keep a baby's attention. Plus, the story is simple enough to charm little children.

As a bonus, there's a free song that can be downloaded, so that parents and children can sing along and find out what happens when an old monster swallows a tick.
