What About the Creek Walker Monster?

We rated this book:


What About The Creek Walker Monster? is a great children’s picture book about an imaginary monster. If you have a young child who is fascinated by monsters, then this is a good book for them. In this book, Daniel learns from three of his friends that there is a monster that lives in the creek behind his house. Daniel learns that it is called the Creek Walker Monster. He tells his father about it, and he says that he has never heard of it. Daniel’s friend Lucas tells him that the monster smells bad, and eats cars. His friends Conner and Dylan also tell him things about the monster. Daniel’s father asks him if any of his friends have seen the monster, and Daniel says that they haven’t. Daniel and his father go to the library to learn more about the monster. While they are there, Daniel sees his friend Lucas and asks him about the monster. Lucas reveals he has learned that the Creek Walker Monster isn’t real, it can only be found in stories. Excited by this news, Daniel decides to make his own story about the monster. He makes his monster kind and friendly.

This is an amazing children’s book. It is well written, and it is filled with wonderful illustrations. The Creek Walker Monster looks frightening on some pages, but towards the end, it looks more friendly. It has green hair and a single red eye. My favorite picture in the book shows the Creek Walker Monster fishing, as Daniel and one of his friends play catch. I also like the picture that shows the monster helping to keep the creek clean along with some of the characters. There is a lot of storytelling in this book, and Daniel must figure out what is true and what is false. One example is when Dylan says that the Creek Walker Monster ate his little sister’s bicycle. Kids will enjoy this book because it is a fun easy read with very colorful pictures and lots of different animals in the background. If you have a child that is afraid of monsters or make-believe characters, this book can show them that there is nothing to be afraid of. This book can also help children learn that not everything they hear is true, and some stories are just make-believe. I would recommend this book to kids from preschool to early elementary school.
