The Monster at the End of This Book

The Monster at the End of This Book

by Jon Stone Illustrated by Michael Smollin

Many, many adults name this book as their favorite Little Golden Book. Generations of kids have interacted with lovable, furry old Grover as he begs the reader not to turn the page — for fear of a monster at the end of the book. "Oh, I am so embarrassed," he says on the last page . . . for, of course, the monster is Grover himself!

This all-time favorite is perfect for lap-time reading.
