Here is another children's book that made a big impression on me as a kid. Once again, I had no idea of the title, author, or illustrator. I could only remember that there were some very odd creatures and monsters in the book. I remember copying the illustrations of some of the weirder creatures as a kid. I recently read these books to my nieces who are 3 and 4 years old. As I read to them I realized that these books were pretty horrific and that many of the latest kids books I've seen recently are pretty tame.
