“The Little Monster will help children with feeling more confident about sleeping at night, and knowing that nothing bad will happen, allowing them to transition into the next stage of their childhood. Sheri Fink has done a great job at creating a fun and uplifting book for young children. I adored the storyline and the illustrations of the characters are cute; children will love them! I can’t recommend this book enough. I enjoyed every page and will be reading it again in the future.” ~ Amy Louise Hill for Readers’ Favorite
