Mommy’s Little Monster by Dawn McNiff. A little troll watches his mother as she prepares to leave for a party just for grown-ups. Mommy paints her claws, slimes her scales, and curls her bristles. She puts on her clodhoppers and pondweed cloak to go to the party. Tiny Troll knows she’s “the prettiest mommy ever.” When Mrs. Hag arrives to babysit, his tantrums set in. Mrs. Hag knows just what will make the crying go away: two mugs of mudmilk and his favorite storybook. When Mom returns home, she leans over the bed to kiss her little monster good night, and give him a bag of rotten worms. The little monster decides that grown-up parties aren’t so bad after all as he drifts off to sleep. See this book listed in our catalog
