Is There a Monster Over There? by Sally O. Lee (Kids Book Review)
About The Author
Sally O. Lee earned her BA in Studio Art and Art History (with Distinction) from Colby College and then went on to study graphic design and painting in Boston (Art Institute of Boston) and in New York
City (New York Studio School). She has had several shows of her work and received an art grant from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology to conceive and create a series of paintings, and from this came her 2002 exhibition- A Journey Into Abstraction. Some of Ms. Lee's paintings are in various private collections in the US.
In recent years, Ms. Lee has begun to write and illustrate children's books. Some of them deal with the struggles of living with some form of handicap...or, as the author prefers to call it, imperfection. Many of her illustrations have been published and she has earned both academic and public recognition for her important work in children's books. She has had illustrations published in Worldlink Magazine, IEEE Magazine, and several other publications.
Sally lives and works in Massachusetts.
Sally Lee writes "My children's books are an extension of my work as a painter. Writing is a new addition for me, and I am enjoying it very much. And creating the illustrations is a perfect way to continue my painting in a new direction and a nice way to complement my writing. I hope to write and illustrate many more".

I thought that is was a absolutely charming book that taught kids to face their fears and really sometimes what you are most afraid really isn't that scary. And sometimes if you confront what you are most afraid of makes you a bigger and better person and that some things or someone that you dislike might actually become a friend and even a good friend. I loved readinng this book to my little girls and they really liked the pictures. This book was definately geared to the ages of 2-5 year olds.
I would definately recommend this book and give it a 5 out of 5. I look forward to finding more of Sally O. Lee's books to read and share with my children.
Thank you to Sally O. Lee and Bostick Communications for sending a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of my honest review.
