Another Monster at the End of this Book was written 25 years after The Monster at the End of this Book, by the original collaborators, as a way to expand upon a modern classic by including Elmo, (who didn't exist when the first title was published). The wild and wacky humor of the original increases ten-fold with the addition of Elmo, as he and Grover dare each other to find the NEW monster at the end of the book. The bright colors and rich textures of the illustrations ramp up the energy-and the fun-as Elmo happily ignores Grover's warnings and prohibitions about moving onward page by page, eager to see what lies in wait at the end. It's a terrifically funny tour de force that will have parents and children laughing out loud as they read this new classic over and over again.From the Hardcover edition.Book Details: Format: Library Binding Publication Date: 1/10/2012 Pages: 32 Reading Level: Age 1 and Up
Dead End in Norvelt is the winner of the 2012 Newbery Medal for the year's best contribution to children's literature and the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction! Melding the entirely true and the wildly fictional, Dead End in Norvelt is a novel about an incredible two months for a kid named Jack Gantos, whose plans for vacation excitement are shot down when he is "grounded for life" by his feuding parents, and whose nose spews bad blood at every little shock he gets. But plenty of excitement (and shocks) are coming Jack's way once his mom loans him out to help a fiesty old neighbor with a most unusual chore—typewriting obituaries filled with stories about the people who founded his utopian town. As one obituary leads to another, Jack is launced on a strange adventure involving molten wax, Eleanor Roosevelt, twisted promises, a homemade airplane, Girl Scout cookies, a man on a trike, a dancing plague, voices from the past, Hells Angels . . . and possibly murder. Endlessly surprising, this sly, sharp-edged narrative is the author at his very best, making readers laugh out loud at the most unexpected things in a dead-funny depiction of growing up in a slightly off-kilter place where the past is present, the present is confusing, and the future is completely up in the air.
