MY Thoughts - The Monsters of Marymount Mansion Written by Gregory G. Allen Illustrated by Shelby Goodwin
The Monsters of Marymount Mansion is written by Gregory G. Allen and is illustrated by Shelby Goodwin. This book is 128 pages. This is recommended for readers age 7-10. I read this with my 10 and 12 year old and all enjoyed it.
In this story we meet Toby. He has skin like a fish, and fur like a dog. He lives with his family in the basement of Marymount Mansion. Once a year, he gets to venture out during Halloween. He looks forward to this. However, he becomes frustrated with having to hide underground. He sets out on a quest.
One of the best things about this book is how we learn to appreciate other's differences. This led to great conversation with my kids.
Thank You to the author, publisher and Children's Book Review for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
