Marisol McDonald and the Monster / Marisol McDonald y el monstruo

By School Library Journal

Marisol McDonald is back and is as magical, mismatched, and marvelous as ever. . . . As with Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match and Marisol McDonald and the Clash Bash, the high-quality bilingual text is slightly mismatched, but the inclusion of two glossaries will ensure comprehension in both Spanish and English, making the tale an ideal choice for one-on-one reading. Whimsical and thoughtfully bicultural mixed-media illustrations lend themselves to the relatable nature of the story. Young readers will be inspired to talk about their fears and face them head-on with confidence and creativity. VERDICT: A must-have for all collections.
