Book Description

A hilarious tale of an adorable, ugly, little monster with the gross-out humour that kids love.

Gregor the little monster is strong, loud, and frighteningly fast, but when he worries that he might not be handsome with his rotten, crooked teeth and his stinky, cheesy feet, he decides to ask his family and friends. With the kind of gross-out humor children’ll love, this story will delight them with its descriptive language and tale of an adorable little monster who discovers he is much-loved and horribly handsome after all.

“Dully’s bright, digital illustrations are deliriously goofy, each a story in itself. They give Dax’s straightforward silliness, teeming with juicy adjectives, a nice lift.” (Picture book. 3-5)” —Kirkus Reviews (U.S.)

“This book gently explores the important concepts of self-esteem and body issues. … You Are Oh So Horribly Handsome! is a story of positive reinforcement, love and acceptance.” —Reading Time (Australia)
