Content: G. A group of ten monsters head into New York City for a visit. They see the most famous sites of the city (Central Park, Empire State Building, etc) and along the way, each monster finds somewhere to stop and stay. So though 10 monsters start out together, by the end only 1 monster makes her debut on Broadway. The story is written in rhyme, and each page also features factoids about the particular NYC site in question . . . The book can still be fun for young readers who like the bit about a group of monsters—who all look very different from one another—traveling together . . . Pre-K, EL(K-3)—OPTIONAL. "
