Tiny Troll throws a GIANT tantrum when Mommy goes out! What will soothe her little monster?

Tiny Troll loves his mommy. More than puddles. More than earwigs. But tonight, Mommy is going to a party, and Mrs. Hag is coming to babysit.

"I'm NOT a baby!" Tiny Troll wails, then refuses to give Mommy a kiss good-bye.

What a little monster!

He tosses his toys and THUMP-THUMP-THUMPS his tail and throws a great big tantrum. Nothing could stop him from crying. Except...

Was that warm mudmilk he smelled?

His mommy almost never let him have mudmilk!

An adorable storybook about those special (and a little bit scary) nights when Mommy goes out, the surprise delights a beloved babysitter (or grandma) can bring, and that magical, sleepy-time moment when Mommy comes back home — with party treats!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Mommy's Little Monster

"This is one of those rare books that make children and adults get giggly." —School Library Journal

"The just-right blend of drama and humor — all from a juvenile troll's point of view — results in a story sure to elicit giggles, delighted screams of "eww" and plenty of happy-ending "aww"s." —Kirkus
