“No matter what happens, friends are still friends at the end of each day.”
Young fans of Godzilla and King Kong have often been disappointed in the lack of children’s books featuring monsters from the big screen. Finally, we have an answer for the three and under crowd- and even better- two famous monsters appear side-by-side.
In this monster themed board book, Godzilla and King Kong offer simple valid friendship advice that include taking turns and sharing. In a fun seek-and-find game, young listeners are encouraged to examine the each page and count various objects like “6 speedy vehicles.” (Though sometimes the objects are quite small). Adult monster fans will find references to a few movie franchise tropes including a page where Godzilla and King Kong play with “9 fun toys” resembling an assortment of army vehicles.
Doesn’t break any new ground, but definitely an answer to the call for movie monster books.
