A little girl has lost her monster at the county fair, and she needs your help to find him! Can you see the monster riding the ferris wheel? Is he playing in the funhouse? Or maybe that's him in the marching band… Locating the friendly-looking monster against each spread of black-and-white illustrations presents a satisfying challenge for young readers, as does identifying the brightly coloured shapes hidden on each page. Kids who like the busy artwork and math-based interactivity of Have You Seen My Monster? will also enjoy author/illustrator Steve Light's previous book, Have You Seen My Dragon?
