A gaggle of friendly monsters cuts a rug on a moonlit night.
Red, blue, yellow and purple creatures with horns, antennae and bug eyes join in the party, but one small beastie is too shy to participate, which readers learn through its quiet asides. In the end, the little monster is invited by the rest to dance through the night. The layout of the rhyming verse, which mostly scans, tries to be as playful as its protagonists. Unfortunately, it skips across the page in a dark type and ends up being both hard to read in the correct sequence and difficult to make out against the nighttime backgrounds. The goofy-looking monsters themselves are created with a fuzzy brushstroke in garish colors, making each double-page spread of this shindig look overbusy.
Though mildly playful, there is not much to this creature feature. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
