Read full description of the books Thelonius Monster's Sky-High Fly-Pie:Thelonius Monster once swallowed a fly, and decided that flies would taste grand in a pie. That silly guy!
Judy Sierraâ€™s funny read-aloud romp presents a monster that children will love as he makes a goo-filled crust, lures hundreds and thousands of succulent flies into it, and invites his â€œdisgusting-istâ€ friends and relations to a gala fly-pie party. â€œHow it glistens! And listenâ€”it hums!â€ shout the ravenous monsters. But just as his guests are about to dig inâ€”the pie flies off. â€œBye, bye, fly pie.â€
Judy Sierraâ€™s story in rhyme begs to be read aloud during Halloween season or any season, and Edward Korenâ€™s signature hairy monsters capture all the humor of this deliciously gross tale.
Read information about the authorI took the long-cut to being an author. Out of college I did temporary work in offices and libraries, while at night, I wrote poetry and made strange life forms from cloth. When I teamed up with a puppeteer, Bob Kaminski (my husband), I was able to bring my cloth creations to life. We began performing on the streets of San Francisco, at Renaissance fairs, and at schools. After attending a workshop on Balinese shadow puppetry, we traveled to Bali and Java to learn ancient techniques from modern masters, and we adapted material from American folklore to the shadow screen. I became so fascinated by the power of ancient myth and folktale to engage a modern audience that I enrolled in the Folklore and Mythology Program at UCLA, where I received my Ph.D. While I was a student there, I attended a talk by the author-illustrator Uri Shulevitz, and heard him say that a picture book is like a small theater. A puppet theater is also a small theater, I thought. I can do that! My first children's books were adaptations of folktales, and soon, I was able to incorporate my lifelong habit of writing poetry into my work.
Currently (Spring 2014), I live in Eugene, Oregon, with my husband. I divide my writing time between children's books and a long term project on folktales, grandmothers and cultural evolution.
