The Story of Growl by Judy Horacek
This Australian import by Judy Horacek features an adorable purple monster named Growl who loves to growl. Unfortunately Growl growls a bit too often and loud for the likes of her neighbors and soon a law is put in place restricting growling on Eucalyptus Drive. Growl is sadder than sad: "running is hard when you're trying not to cry." Then one night, her growling comes in handy. Cute, simple story with delightful illustrations shows children and adults alike that there is a time and place for everything. Not a must have - but one that if you did have it, you and your child would enjoy it over and over again.
