The Monsters on Mill Street series is specifically designed to assist children in developing executive functioning and social-emotional learning (SEL) skills. With lively illustrations and playful rhymes, each story follows an energetic and lovable monster on an adventure filled with chaos and unexpected challenges — all while learning valuable lessons along the way. Here’s a closer look at the first three books:
- The Messiest Monster on Mill Street: Max’s messes are legendary—paint on the walls, spills on the floor, crumbs in his fur, and toys scattered everywhere. But Max never intended to be messy; there was simply too much to do and too much fun to be had. That is until one day when his mess becomes an uncontrollable monster of its own!
- The Angriest Monster on Mill Street: Meet Albie, a small but fiercely temperamental monster, whose oversized anger sets off a chain of chaotic events, including earthquakes, tornadoes, and flooding that engulfs the entire street. Join the adventure as monsters scurry for cover and Albie attempts to quell the mounting chaos. Will life on Mill Street ever be the same?
- The Bounciest Monster on Mill Street: Becks is known for her boundless energy and zest for life, but one day her exuberance gets her into a heap of trouble! Join this high-spirited monster on an unforgettable bouncing escapade down Mill Street (and beyond).
“From Albie’s big emotions to Becks’ boundless energy and Max’s messy mishaps, every child will see a bit of themselves in our Monsters on Mill Street characters,” said Sarah Sparks, the series’ author. “Monsters on Mill Street equips kids with essential life skills in a way that’s relatable, exciting and a bit silly. These are stories that spark imagination and get kids thinking. They’re exactly the kind of books your child will want to read again and again.”
