Overview

Irrepressible Stewart the monster is back, and he has big news: He’s going camping in five days! But if he could just change the clocks, build a time machine, or make this book move faster, he could go camping NOW. Of course, Stewart’s parents know that good things come to those who wait – and eventually Stewart will learn that, too.

In this hilarious follow-up to This Monster Needs a Haircut, Bethany Barton channels her inner preschooler and shows readers that even the most exuberant, enthusiastic, in-the-moment monsters can be persuaded to wait. Eventually.

Praise

“Toothy and unkempt, with wild eyes and a temper tantrum of a roar—“I wanna go camping NOW!”—Stewart fully embodies a preschooler who has not yet mastered the art of waiting. Barton’s sprawling, hand-lettered text and its buoyant placement match the urgency of Stewart’s desperation.” - Kirkus Reviews

“The sprawling text printed in capital letters emphasizes Stewart’s impatience, and the quirky ink and Photoshop illustrations add many humorous moments to the story.” – School Library Journal
