about me

   The easiest way to build a character is from the ground up. So, start with the feet!
It's your job to finish the monster however you would like! Fins? Flippers? Two eyes or
fourteen? It's up to you! 

   There are certainly Monsters in Manhattan, but I bet you can find monsters hiding ALL OVER your very own school.

Create scary, interesting or funny monsters that live in the gym, the cafeteria, the principal's office and even the bathroom! Write their stories and draw what
you think your school's unique creatures look like.

Teachers and parents can use this handy discussion guide to help their children dive deeper into the book.
  
Filled with fun facts about
the stories creation, guiding questions,curriculum connectors and fun projects, this guide makes reading the book just the
beginning of the fun! 

Manhattan is crawling with creatures, creeps and assorted kooky characters!

Explore the Monster Map and get
special biographies on all the monsters. Plus, tons of fun facts about all of the incredible landmarks and tourist attractions
of New York City.

The Empire State
Building Challenge

 I bet you didn't realize how easy it is to make a monster? It is super easy! Just look around the house for anything old, unused or on it's way to the trash. Shoe boxes, soda cans, straws, cotton balls, CDs or even old sneakers can be the fantastic beginning of a spooky, hilarious or goofy monster. Watch the video or click on the hand-out to see how!

   The Empire State Building has 102 floors,
I bet you can't stack 102 nickels, or blocks, or dice or anything else. I bet you can't!
Prove me wrong!!

Check out some examples!
