Have you ever wondered about the habits and daily lives of monsters? Would you be surprised to learn that they engage in mundane activities just like the rest of us? Writer/artist Super Ugly has spilled the beans and given us an inside look at the everyday lives of monsters.
Through the efforts of Super Ugly, we learn that Monsters Are Just Like Us. Monsters alternates between pages with text and hilarious pictures telling us things like “They never clear a paper jam, just like you!” and “They think ‘double-decaf, non-fat, no foam latte’ is coffee just like you!” My personal favorite is “They sing along with Miley Cyrus in the shower, just like you!” Unlike most books that show monsters rampaging and frightening people, Super Ugly shows monsters at work, at home, and at play.
Monsters Are Just Like Us is a very clever book that can be read and appreciated by all ages. It even has the classic “This book belongs to” page that allows readers to actually write their name on their copy of the book. Super Ugly is a clever, witty writer, and I look forward to his further writings about monsters or humans. Monsters are just like us, and they’re pretty awesome.
