One Hungry Monster is a rhyming book for young readers that introduces them to the basics of counting.
A little boy encounters ten very naughty little monsters who invade his house in an attempt to get some food. But even though he feeds them; the unthankful critters mess up his house even more, and they treat him so badly that he finally throws a bit of a tantrum and ... well, enough said for now!
The story is delightful and full of fun and mischief, but make sure — if you can find it — to get the older unabridged version. It is by far better than the newer one.
