Book Review – Grover’s Just So-So Stories

Okay, so I have finally finished Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street, but before I end my first Sesame Street kick I would like to present 1983’s Grover’s Just So So-Stories. The book plays off of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories for Little Children and instead of the tale of how the Elephant Got His Trunk these stories include How the Monster Got His Fur and How the Honker Got His Honk. While the story detailing how monsters got fur isn’t scientifically accurate it uses poetic license to prove that the monsters needed fur to stay warm. The tale of the Honker is slightly more realistic with more of a nice moral lesson that everyone is important. Now all that is left is to see what happens during my next Sesame Street kick. And as always I must mention that Grover’s Just So-So Stories is Elmo free.
