PICTURE BOOK: I Loathe You by David Slonim

I Loathe You

A cut little "I love you all the time" type story with a twist. The characters are monsters and they "loathe" one another rather than "love." The pictures are lovely and the twist is clever and fun for reading. We are David Slonim fans, having met him a few years ago when he came to talk to my Writing Club students about writing and illustrating. He's a funny guy who relates well with students, and this is a fun story. I can see reading this one to my kindergartners - although my fourth graders might like it, too, since they just had "loathe" as a vocabulary word!
