DMC: "Book Monsters" by Jone Rush MacCulloch

Massey Services


squirmy nocturnal
book monsters
munch pages
chowing on book paste
until the librarian
arrives with tweezers

TLD reader Rebecca Herzog has challenged us to write a poem about something a monster is afraid of. Read my interview with Becky HERE and add your poem about a monster fear to the padlet. While some contributions will be featured as daily ditties leading up to Halloween, you can check out our entire monster menagerie HERE.


  1. While I might be more comfortable reading poems about imaginary monsters, Jone, I love the real-life approach you've taken... even if it DOES make my skin crawl! Book monsters, indeed.

  2. As a librarian, I guess you know this truth, Joan. Ugh, tweezers? A new fear to know!

  3. Fun poem by Jone-I can see little children dressing like book worms for Halloween.
