The simplicity of children?s picture books?stories told with illustrations and a few well chosen words or none at all?makes them powerful tools for teaching morals and personal integrity. Children follow the story and see the characters? behaviors on the page and interpret them in the... context of their own lives. But unlike many picture books, most children?s lives don?t feature monsters. This collection of new essays explores the societally sanctioned behaviors imparted to children through the use of monsters and supernatural characters. Topics include monsters as instructors, the normalization of strangers or the ?other,? fostering gender norms, and therapeutic monsters, among others.
