Simone: The Best Monster Ever!

Simone

By Rémy Simard

From 5 to 8 | 48 pages

Simone is a sweet, rosy-cheeked little girl. Maurice is a green, googly-eyed monster. When Simone enters Maurice’s world, she strikes terror in monsters’ hearts! Here, the rules are turned upside down—flowers, puppies, and good behavior are the stuff of nightmares, and all things scary and icky are adored.

Each page in this comics collection tells a different mini-story featuring Simone and Maurice in four to six panels. Despite (and often because of) their differences, they have hilarious adventures together. Bold, vibrant cartoon art and speech bubbles with plenty of sound effects make punchlines simple to grasp. Single-page stories feature various seasons, holidays, activities, sports, and school, making this a fun, relatable pick for emergent readers seeking an entry point to graphic novels.

"Each page contains a three- to five-panel comic that wraps itself up nicely with an obvious punchline... A good choice for beginning readers or as an introduction to graphic novels." - Booklist
"Sure to be a hit with elementary-aged jokesters, monsters and humans alike." - School Library Journal
"The comic strip presentation is quick and does not require a lot of patience for young children as the storylines, while consistent with a theme, change rapidly from each comic to the other." - Canadian Review of Materials
