As part of our poetry study this month (April is Poetry Month in Canada and the USA), we read "Monster Museum" written by Marilyn Singer and illustrated by Gris Grimly. I had shared a very similar book by the same author in January, Creature Carnival.
Monster Museum is a collection of poems about different monsters. You are taken on a tour of the Monster Museum. The illustrations in this book are great and match the poems perfectly.
Here is a short little poem, from the Giant page:
to a furious giant
is really a delicate issue
for he's far from petite,
he's got very big feet,
and he might be inclined
just to squish you."
