Review:

"If you're a monster and you know it, snort and growl…." This appealing take on the classic children's song, "If You're Happy and You Know It," is written by Rebecca Emberley. The vibrant, color-saturated depictions of varied whimsical monsters with smacking claws, twitching tails and wiggly warts are a collaborative effort between Emberley and her father, Caldecott Award-winner Ed Emberley. A companion sing-along song by Adrian Emberely, who alters the traditional tune a bit, is available for free download, but parents and kids may have a better time singing the comical text together a capella.
