Gargantua (Jr ) wants to grow up to be just like Mom. Before Junior came along, Mom had a reputation for being a little wild, but now she only knocks over buildings that are supposed to come down. She also protects Earth from dangerous space robots and giant asteroids. Gargantua (Jr ) would like to help out, but Mom says, "You're too little." So Junior sets out to prove that she's wrong ...
Making amends for past mistakes, giving back to the community, learning one's limits and teamwork all come into play in this story about a mom and her baby monster, vibrantly written and illustrated by Kevin Sylvester.
