TCBR AWARENESS TOUR: What to Do About Your Monsters by Jessica Woo - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining The Children's Book Review for a blog tour already in progress starring a new Children's Picture Book that's ready to tackle bedtime like never before...and then some!  It's filled to the brim with imaginative illustrations that really make it easy to see just what our gal Kinzie is dealing with, but will she be able to be her monsters to rest?  Let's find out as we explore between the pages of...

What to Do About Your Monsters
Jessica Woo

About the book...
Meet Kinzie. She has a bunch of fun-loving, slightly smelly, Monsters that live in her room. They never let her sleep at night. But that’s ok, her parents always help her out. Until one day they decide it’s time she learns to sleep on her own. What will Kinzie do about her Monsters?

What To Do About Your Monsters is a heartfelt story about a girl who has sleep issues. At its core, however, the story is not just about having problems sleeping, but about being afraid to try something new.


We all know the problem, either from our own lives or those of our kiddos...bedtime comes around, and so to the MONSTERS, the BOOGIE MEN, and all the things that go BUMP in the night.   Simple solution?  Run for someone bigger, someone more grown up, someone to fight out battle for us...but is the monster really conquered?  Will it not simply come back once the coast is clear of our proverbial knight in shining armor, and show its face once more...perhaps even bigger, badder, or more unputdownable?  That's the something we don't always think about, but it doesn't mean the possibility isn't still there.  The REAL solution...put those monsters to rest by trying something different, something new, something creatively out of the box that may not make much sense at the moment, and yet it still very well may work!  The point is to KEEP TRYING.  Don't give up!  We can slay our own monsters.  We can put to rest the worries of the day, the stresses of our lives, the obstacles our brains can't see an easy way around.  It may take backup because no man or woman is an island, but it's essential we see it through, and that sense of accomplishment, that empowered feeling will be so worth it in the end.

So join Kinzie for her restless nights, and see just how she conquers all those monsters to find her own sweet dreams in the end.

In Illustration, Jessica most recently worked on a concept art piece for Universal. In art direction, her recent project, Dinner Party, was accepted in the exclusive Sundance film festival. Finally, in animation, her work is featured in movies such as Kung Fu Panda, Monster vs Aliens, Shrek 4, Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special, Kung Fu Panda 2, The Croods, and Turbo.
