Maddie's Monster Dad is a children's book written by Scott Gibala-Broxholm. It was first published in 2011.


Maddie loves monsters. She loves watching monster movies, eating monster cereal, and drawing monster pictures. She also loves doing things with her dad.

But lately her dad has been very busy with work, so Maddie decides to use her Build-a-Beast kit to create a Monster Dad that is never too busy to play. It turns out there are some things that monsters can't do, and maybe a Monster Dad isn't as special as the real thing.

The illustrations in gouache and pencil contain clever, fun details that children (and adults) will love.
