What would you do if your birthday wish came true—and now you had a tail?

Cedric wishes for a tail on his birthday and is overjoyed when his wish comes true. Having a tail is great! Now Cedric can swing around on trees, help his mom clean up the house twice as fast, and even fight crime! As Cedric gets used to his new limb, though, he realizes that having a tail isn’t everything he thought it would be . . . but can he ever go back to being a regular tail-less kid? In this hilarious cautionary tale, Amani Uduman and Agnès Ernoult invite readers to experience the joys and frustrations of an unexpected gift—with a surprising solution.

小男孩想要画出一幅顶顶可怕的怪兽图画——长长的绿舌头,尖尖的犄角,吓人的獠牙……你猜这样的小怪兽能吓唬到男孩的家人和朋友吗?屡次尝试失败的小男孩最后又创作了什么杰作呢?小艺术家们不如一起开动脑筋,助小男孩一臂之力吧!

A humorous celebration of imagination and creativity that invites kids to create their own monster masterpieces with everyday materials. Perfect for art lovers of all ages!

What’s the SCARIEST, MEANEST, most TERRIBLE monster you can imagine? For one child, every proper monster means a green tongue! Pointy horns! And definitely extra sharp teeth. But what’s a kid to do when the entire family thinks their monster drawings are “cute” and not frightening at all? Maybe monsters aren’t what this child previously thought—and it might just take some thinking outside the box to reveal surprising lessons about fears and perceptions.

Using found objects like buttons, cereal, string, along with traditional paints and fun cutouts, My Monsterpiece encourages children to pour over the details and look around them for materials that can be turned into art.
