The Three Little Monsters and the Cranky King: A Story About Friendship, Kindness and Accepting Differences, by Teydon Rae, illustrated by Ignacio G., is a gorgeous children's book that will undoubtedly appeal to both parents and their kids. To parents because it tackles essential values that we want to share with our beloved children. To kids because of the amazing illustrations and the characters who are monsters. Kid monsters and a king monster. Everything you can dream about in a story.
The Three Little Monsters and the Cranky King by Teydon Rae is indeed a fabulous tale. It deals with so much more than what we can immediately see. It shows children or students that believing anything about people you do not know is not the best attitude. It also shows them that being cranky can be linked to being lonely, and that is an easy issue to resolve. Being open-hearted and generous usually does the trick. To top it all, it shows that diversity is good, that in fact we are all different and that is what makes us unique and what makes life great and worth living. What is more, you can always be surprised when you make new friends... The three little monsters have learned so much, a bit like the three little pigs, who managed to outwit the Wolf. What counts is not your size, your age, or your appearance but what is in your heart. A book to cherish and share that I highly recommend!
