A third of the way into the first story, I started to smile, and I never stopped. This is a lovely, quietly fun fire-breathing monster book with just enough whimsy and happy endings. The art doesn't look sophisticated on first glance, but the people are little and cute and totally funny. Mervyn the monster is a gorgeous, happy fellow who wouldn't hurt a fly. If you know a kiddo who would appreciate a friendly monster, this one's for them!
