The most beautiful girl in the whole of the school is Lucinda Belinda Melinda McCool-- but Lucinda Belinda felt it was her duty to guide all her friends in the subject of beauty. Lucinda becomes the scourge of family and friends, criticising big bottoms and moustaches (especially her grandma's) until everyone avoids her. So when Lucinda meets a monster in the forest, she makes it her mission to make-over this scary creature. Unfortunately, changing its outside does not change what's inside-- as Lucinda Belinda discovers!

This is seriously the worst picture book I've ever read. Thankfully, I scanned it quickly before reading it to my kids. Moral of the story? Be image-obsessed and be mean to everyone around you and you might get eaten by a monster. Yes, that's really what happens in the book. I'm not kidding.

Thing is, my kids and I have loved some of Jeanne Willis's other books (Hippospotamus, The Bog Baby, Elephants Can't Jump, and more), but this one is a dud.
