Welcome to Monster Isle

The publisher Immedium, Inc. sent me a link to a cool picture book by Oliver Chin and Jeff Miracola. It's called Welcome to Monster Isle and they describe it as "Gilligan's Island meeting Godzilla."
A family's vacation goes bananas when a perfect storm tosses their skipper's tiny boat off course. Now seven castaways are stranded on an uncharted desert island!

Finnegan, his sister, parents and dog Howl venture into the wild and encounter a menagerie of colorful monsters. Can these hardy survivors befriend seven beasts straight from their wildest imaginations?

Whimsical and lushly layered illustrations invigorate a zootopia of mythical creatures like the Yowie and Ogopogo. Adventurous readers will take a trip they'll never forget, since being lost was never so fantastic!
Val Stevenson of Fortean Times calls it "a charming introduction to crytozoology for very young children." Introducing toddlers to giant monsters is a mission that I fully endorse.
