Gila Monsters Meet You
at the Airport

by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat

Do gila monsters meet you at the airport when you move out west? Are there alligators in the sewers of New York city? A humorous dig at stereotyping, this story is one of the most popular children's books to address kids' fears about moving house - especially to strange new places.

Funny stories are a great way to help kids see the absurdity of commonly-held and entrenched prejudices. While keeping readers entertained, this story delivers a powerful message about the dangers of accepting hearsay as truth.
