The Children's Book of the Week this week is Even Monsters Need Haircuts by Matthe McElligott.
This ghoulishly funny story of a monster barber is now available in board book format, just in time for Halloween. Just before midnight, on the night of a full moon, a young barber stays out past his bedtime to go to work. Although his customers are mostly regulars, they are anything but normal—after all, even monsters need haircuts. Business is steady all night, and this barber is prepared for anything with his scissors, rotting tonic, horn polish, and stink wax. It's a tough job, but someone's got to help these creatures maintain their ghoulish good looks.
