The Monster’s Monster (2012)
What makes a monster a monster after all? Patrick McDonnell’s acclaimed picture book shows kids that you can’t judge a book by its cover, or a “monster” by the way he looks on the outside. The story follows a team of little monsters who create a bigger one, Frankenstein-style. The three get confused when their new friend is anything but monstrous. He’s kind. This one will bring a tear to your eye.
If you’re in the mood for crying, here are some movies that will do the trick.
