“I’m not one to argue that the world doesn’t need more monsters, be they made of papier and/or cloth mâché, as demonstrated in Dan’s entertaining new book, or flesh and blood, as demonstrated by the one standing behind you right now.” —Gary Larson, creator, Far Side
“For lovers of the truly grotesque, Reeder provides detailed photo instructions for large figures constructed of clothes hangers, newspaper, and glue. Cloth skin, teeth, and slathered-on paint finish them off. The toothy dragons are particularly effective.” —School Library Journal
