DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
Larry's favorite time of the year has arrived.  He races around his home trying to make everything perfect before his friends arrive for Christmas morning.  During the celebration, he discovers a lonely monster named Walter, who is very sad.  Larry asks him why he is sad and Walter explains that Christmas is a difficult time of the year because he is always alone and has no family.  Larry invites him to spend the holiday with him and his friends.  Walter shyly accepts the invitation and follow Larry back to him home.  Walter is welcomed by Larry's friends and ends up having the most merry Christmas ever.

MY THOUGHTS:
I love the illustrations in this book!  They are so colorful and festive.  Completely beautiful.
This is a great non-traditional Christmas book and non-scary monster story.  Larry the Lollipop Monster is so happy that it is Christmas and he is having a party with his friends.  But then he meets a sad monster that has never celebrated Christmas.  Larry finds out the true meaning of Christmas.  It is a great story to help children understand that Christmas is about more than food, gifts, and Santa.
It would be a great addition to your Christmas reading list.


I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.
