Hush, Little Monster

Illustrated by: Melissa Iwai
For Ages: 4 - 6
A classic lullaby gets a playfully spooky spin in this monstrously sweet picture book.

Hush, Little Monster, don’t you howl.
Daddy’s gonna give you a…screeching owl.
If that owl won’t say “whoo whoo”…
Granny Ghost will bring you a big, bad boo!
     A monster father softly sings his own version of a favorite lullaby to his son. A screeching owl, a vampire, an ogre, and zombies are just a few of the creatures who will come to soothe Little Monster through the night, until (when the sun comes up) it’s finally time for him to go to sleep. Parents and children alike will love this humorous twist on “Hush, Little Baby.”

About the Author

Denis Markell

Denis Markell has written everything from off-Broadway Musicals to Situation Comedies and even funny birthday cards for family members. This is his second book for children. It was inspired by singing “Hush, Little Baby” to his son every night. For years.  His fondest hope is that this will stop before his son goes to college.
