In Monster Day at Work by Sarah Dyer, Little Monster and his dog Scamp accompany Dad to work. First on the list is picking out which tie to wear. After making it through the tough morning commute they settle in enjoying donuts and pastries at the morning meeting. Back in Dad’s office they work on the computer, Dad making graphs and Little Monster playing a video game. After lunch Monster helps by coloring in the charts Dad has spent all morning working on. Next on the list is a nap, Dad continues to work with one eye closed to get caught up. After visiting the pig shaped bank it’s off to the gym where dad runs on the treadmill and Little Monster plays on the slide. Little Monster can’t imagine how his father gets so tired every day when his job is so easy. He decides to spend the next day at home with his mother because she does nothing all day. The last page shows Monster Mum multitasking, frantically using all of her arms (growing a few new ones) and legs to get her work done while Little Monster sleeps in the laundry basket.
