The Monster at the End of the Book (starring Grover) by Jon Stone. My son has only begun watching Sesame Street (we didn’t have a television set while in Australia) and so far only watches for 10 minutes before walking away. But when I was reminded of this book, I had to revisit it. And I love it!
On each page, Grover warns us not to turn the page because turning the pages will bring us closer to the end of the book. He’s scared because the title told him there is a monster at the end of the book. But, of course, we reach the end of the book and discover Grover is the monster. And he’s lovable and furry. I imagine older kids love the “don’t you dare turn the page!” challenge. My son, as I mentioned, didn’t get it much yet. Maybe in a few months.
