Why Pete’s Monster?

Pete's monster book coverThere are nearly two million children’s book titles listed on Amazon. Then we have books listed on Barnes & Noble, among many other local book stores that list other child related titles.

All of these books are waiting for you to select them as the next book you read, or select for your child. So why choose Pete’s Monster?…

First of all Pete’s Monster was originally called ‘Being Brave.’ It was a poem that I wrote many years ago when I was a single mom raise my two wonderful girls. I myself needed to be brave, so it was an appropriate title and poem that I wrote, which I would read when I needed to gather strength.

It was during a time when I was writing personalized poems for clients who found my website on the world wide web. It was very therapeutic for me, being able to express my emotions down on paper. I experienced mixed emotions from a lost love, to the elation of having children that gave me nothing but tremendous joy.

I wrote a collection of poems as requested by my customer’s, and they ranged from the birth of a child, all the way through the spectrum to the end of someone life. Naturally when I had to write poems of sorrow, I needed a mental pick me up, so I would write silly humorous poems that I would share with my girls to cause a smile, and hopefully even a giggle or two.

As the years passed and life changed, so did the poem ‘Being Brave.’ It was no longer a poem about me having to be brave, but it was now about my children having to be brave, as they ascended through their school years, and the challenges that they faced in life.

‘Being Brave’ poem was re-written and now focused on my children and the challenges that they had to undergo from the outside world, and from their own imagination.

Please enjoy Pete’s Monster. It’s a rhyming story that is dear to my heart, and hopefully will bring both you and your child joy as they read it alone, or you share it together at bedtime.

Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend

Pete’s Monster My New Friend, is a continuation from the first book called Pete’s Monster.

In the first book, the story ends with Pete escorts the Blue Monster to live in his older brother George’s bedroom. Even though the Blue Monster had not caused Pete any harm or concern for him to be afraid of the Blue Monster. Pete wanted the Monster out from under his bed and George’s room seemed the obvious place for the Monster to stay.

It wasn’t till in the second book, Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend, that we watch a friendship grow.

PETE's MONSTER_My New Friend COVER resizedThe Blue Monster knocks at Pete’s bedroom door one night and asks to return to sleeping under Pete’s bed. Pete is happy that the Monster wants to come back as he missed his companion, the Blue Monster. His new friend.

Pete leaves his bedroom after lights out against his Mother’s orders. He goes into the kitchen to get his new Monster friend something to eat, after the Monster tells Pete that he is hungry.

Pete’s Monster ~ My New Friend is also a rhyming storybook. It subtly and creatively covers the topic of friendship and was created to inform children at an early age that a friend can be of any size, shape or color.

The moral in the first Pete’s Monster book is that you should never lash out and hurt anyone, (bullying) because the true person who gets hurt the most could end up being you as you could be labeled as a bully at school and no one will want to be your friend.
