Early Sketches and Outtakes and Art and Such
from Peter Brown (Who is Not Really a Monster)

That’s right. Despite photographic evidence from last week, Peter Brown is not actually a monster.

Since I chatted (here) last week with Peter about his newest book, My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I am Not.), published by Little, Brown, I’m following up today with some images he sent — some final art from the book but also early sketches, an outtake, etc. The early sketch above cracks. me. up.

Enjoy …

Final art: “Bobby had a big problem at school. Her name was Ms. Kirby. …”

Final art: “Bobby spent his free time in the park, trying to forget his teacher problems. But one Saturday morning, on the way to his favorite spot,
Bobby found a terrible surprise.”

Final spread: “Bobby wanted to run! He wanted to hide!
But he knew that would only make things worse.”
