THE PROBLEM WITH NOT BEING
SCARED OF KIDS
 picture book

Some monsters are actually scared of kids. But others are not—and the problem with not being scared of kids is nearly insurmountable.

 

How is a monster to become friends with a kid when being helpful is hazardous, sharing is startling, and claws mixed with crafts are a calamity?

Featuring an understated text and a cast of friendly monsters, this is a funny tale about facing fears and making friends.

"A group of not-very-scary monsters tries very hard to make friends with kids, which is exactly as problematic as one might expect… the illustrations deliver the punch lines… there are witty moments… a sweet last page."   

    - Kirkus Reviews, 2015

"In this follow up to The Problem With Not Being Scared of Monsters (Boyds Mills, 2014), Richards gives the monsters a chance to tell their story. These silly-looking creatures want to make some friends, but sadly, children dash away, scared, before they get to know them.
 
One boy reaches out, pulling the octopus monster over the turning page to join in the fun. Richards reuses the monsters and the child from his previous book to pair these stories through their theme of friendship, and the frustrations of their protagonists."
 
Rachel Forbes, School Library Journal, August 2015 Issue
