PreS-Gr 2—Election season is here, and Monster is ready to vote! But why cast a ballot when he can run for president instead? With speeches, debates, and a soapbox or two, Monster's newest tale encourages kids to take a stand and fight for what they believe in. Playful rhyming text and comically overblown rhetoric (oratory skills, platform, grassroots movement) combined with colorful digital illustrations exemplify the intricacies of being a candidate and the importance of the democratic process. The extra bonus is that after a couple of missteps, Monster hits his stride by campaigning to save libraries. VERDICT A good introduction to what happens on a campaign, how voting for a president works, and the dynamics of civic engagement.—Paula Huddy, The Blake School-Highcroft Campus, Wayzata, MN [Page 80].
