Handee is a planet of hands that spins in the sky around the Nameless Star. Monster C on the Hands’ Planet by Loreta Yono tells readers that the inhabitants of the planet are all hands and that everything on the planet is hand-shaped. Handee gets its rotation power and its life-sustaining force every morning when all the hands come together to greet and shake. From the Great Mount comes one of the most important rules for the planet - to wash - as not washing means death to the Handee. One day a big monster called Monster C crashes onto the planet. Monster C poses a large threat because it is dirty, gets others dirty, does not like to wash, and discourages others from washing. On a planet that survives on washing and cleanliness, the hands must discover how to conquer Monster C or suffer the consequence.
The illustrations in Monster C on the Hands’ Planet by Loreta Yono are delightful. It is amusing to see the creativity in everything made from hands. The little mouths on the hands also brought a smile to my face. Occasionally, the illustrations also contained a funny dialogue cloud. The words of the book are short and simple. At the end of the story, there are hand washing tips, suggested times to wash your hands, and other interesting facts. This got me thinking about how I can and should do better at washing my hands properly. This book also contained a subtle, yet important message about the importance of being healthy and greeting one another, which is what makes the world go round.
