Love Monster by Rachel Bright

Mark Darcy said it best when he told Bridget Jones, "I like you very much, just as you are".

Because isn't that what we all really want? (no, not Colin Firth...well, yes him too) We all want someone to love us just the way we are. 

This was definitely the case for Monster in Rachel Bright's Love Monster. Monster lives in Cutesville, where everyone was cute, cuddly, and fluffy. Everyone, that is, except for Monster. Monster was far from cute, cuddly, and fluffy. He was more on the hairy, googly eyed, monster side. Not many people love monsters who are hairy, googly eyed, and slightly scary. But that doesn't mean Monster doesn't want someone to love him...googly eyes and all. He sets out on a mission to find someone to love him.  Monster soon discovers that finding that special someone might  be a little harder than he expected. 

Why I love Love Monster: Bright teaches readers, through a low self-esteem monster, that we all deserve to be loved for who we are...not what we want to be or what everyone else loves.  Another important lesson, which Monster learns is not to give up on love. When you least expect it, love will find you.
