Lives of the Monster Dogs by Book Resume:

The twentieth anniversary of a postmodern classic, blending the gothic novel with bleeding-edge science fiction After a century of cruel experimentation, a haunted race of genetically and biomechanically uplifted canines are created by the followers of a mad nineteenth-century Prussian surgeon. Possessing human intelligence, speaking human language, fitted with prosthetic hands, and walking upright on their hind legs, the monster dogs are intended to be super soldiers. Rebelling against their masters, however, and plundering the isolated village where they were created, the now wealthy dogs make their way to New York, where they befriend the young NYU student Cleo Pira and—acting like Victorian aristocrats—become reluctant celebrities. Unable to reproduce, doomed to watch their race become extinct, the highly cultured dogs want no more than to live in peace and be accepted by contemporary society. Little do they suspect, however, that the real tragedy of their brief existence is only now beginning. Told through a variety of documents—diaries, newspaper clippings, articles for Vanity Fair, and even a portion of an opera libretto—Kirsten Bakis’s Lives of the Monster Dogs uses its science-fictional premise to launch a surprisingly emotional exploration of the great themes: love, death, and the limits of compassion. A contemporary classic, this edition features a new introduction by Jeff VanderMeer.

The Monster on Top of the Bed by Alan H. Jordan Book Resume:

"Blimp, blop, blimp, bloop. Suzy gripped her sheets tightly. Was that noise coming from under her bed?" Helps Children Banish Bedtime FearsSo begins Suzy's adventure where she meets Karrit, another child, and one that lives far under her bed. The two children banish their bedtime fears and become best friends by treating each other the way that they want to be treated.A Fear of Monsters is CommonA fear of monsters under the bed is common with children of all ages, starting with a vague sense of the unknown with younger toddlers and graduating to perhaps a more solid image in the minds of older children.The Monster on Top of the Bed flips the idea around, like the famous Disney Movie Monsters Inc., and bases the story on the concept that it's the monsters that are actually afraid of the children.The Children Model The Golden RuleIn this beautifully illustrated book we meet two children--Suzy and Karrit, and we discover that sometimes things are not always what they seem and when the monster fears the child, we come to see a different perspective on misunderstandings and ignorance.We also discover that it is easy to misinterpret the meanings of words and actions, when Karrit explains to Suzy that certain things she says and does, frightens him.Although the words, "The Golden Rule" never appear in the book, the way the two children treat each other as though they would like to be treated enable the two of them to work together to work out their differences. A friendship forms, and a new light is shed upon them both when they realize that maybe they aren't so different from each other after all.A Mantra that Banishes Nighttime FearsWhen things get scary, both children use Grandmom's mantra, which is highly effective in banishing monsters, "“You're welcome to stay until I say, 'Nay!' Then it's time to go, and you can't say, 'no.'”This is an empowering bedtime story. The multimedia edition contains a link to an .mp4 file that features the same audio tracks in the CD v
