Melissa was sitting on the sofa reading a book. For some reason, the sofa felt a bit uncomfortable today. All lumpy-bumpy. Melissa lifted up the cover and saw five little shaggy green monsters crouching underneath. Who are you? she asked in amazement. But the monsters just laughed in her face. Just you wait! said Melissa. She got out the vacuum cleaner and tried to vacuum the monsters up. But they simply fastened their claws into the cushion and grinned at Melissa. Okay! Fine! said Melissa. If that’s the way you want it … Then she called on the secret anti-monster weapon which fills all monsters with fear and dread. Melissa roared as loud as she could, Muummmyyy! Suddenly, the little monsters evaporated into thin air. The cowards were scared of grown-ups! Feeling pleased with herself, Melissa opened her book again. At last she could look at the pictures without being disturbed. S.H. 3 January The birthday dwarf

But winter is fantastic! piped up the cheeky sparrow. Jonathan wrapped his warm scarf tightly round him and looked out at the sea. He did this every day. Even in winter. He loved to watch the ships sailing by. Hey! You! Baffled, Jonathan peered into the water. Who should be swimming there but a little mermaid!They Lied!!! This actually has 366 stories. I deliberately started this on a non leap year in some mad delusion that they wouldn't have included February 29. They have (and honestly it's a Pluto story and I'm not a fan so I did skip it). The Lilo and Stitch one was adroable and Wall-e makes an appearance. I felt like this one had more stories I wasn't interested in. I read them anyway and thank heaven that they are short. According to one of the "Tommy Tumbleweed" stories, Canada has no zoos. The oldest zoo in Canada was established in 1918. I'll be charitable and say the author was working from outdated references. As a preschooler in the early 1960s, I dearly loved this book. In 2020 I still remember it with fondness.
