Monsters University by Barbara Bazaldua

Mike, the one eyed monster, sets his life goal at first grade:  He's going to be a scarer!  The fact that he's the smallest in school has nothing to do with it.  He KNOWS he's going to be a scarer.

Golden Books/Random House sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

I never saw the movie, so I had great fun meeting all the monsters that the Disney Pixar team created.  My favorite was Sully.  He's big, fluffy, and likes to bend the rules a bit.  Mike's team for competition is the one least likely to succeed.  They start awful, begin to do better, and when Mike does the final scary moment, they win.  Then Mike finds out Sully cheated so Mike would pass the scream test...

This story is done tastefully and with a good message for children.  It's a delight to read and Monster fans should be happy to see them again.  Give it a try.

Happy reading.
