Marisol McDonald and the Monster / Marisol McDonald y el monstruo

(2) K-3 Translated by Adriana Dominguez. Illustrated by Sara Palacios. In her second book, Marisol McDonald explores words beginning with M. One M word, however, scares Marisol: "Monster! / ¡Monstruo!" A "BUMP" in the night fills Marisol's mind with worrisome questions. She comes up with a characteristically imaginative answer, then learns the real, not-so-scary cause of the sound. Mixed-media art sparkles with color and personality, matching Marisol's exuberance. The Spanish translation preserves the text's tone nicely. Glos.
