Sam (who is scared of everything except Leonardo, the terrible monster) finds a new fear he's never known before: the fear of making a new friend! Enter scaredy-cat Kerry and her terrible monster, Frankenthaler (best monster name ever!). The two monsters leave Sam and Kerry on their own to figure out how to navigate a new friendship. They soon find they have plenty in common and also some differences. This is confusing at first, but doesn't matter because it's okay to be different and still like each other!
Another hit from our pal, Mo Willems. Kids and parents nervous about the first day of school or making friends in new situations will appreciate this story. Don't forget to look for the pigeon!
