Not All Monsters Like to Scare

Not All Monsters Like to Scare is a children’s book about gender equality. The book teaches children that everyone can enjoy any activity regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or background. The story follows Rowan, an ordinary monster who likes to scare and is constantly making fun of monsters who enjoy different activities such as cooking or playing sports. The character design is based on monsters because they have no specific gender. The names chosen for the characters are also gender neutral names that facilitate gender fluidity in the story.  The illustration style is inspired by Dr. Seuss’ children’s books illustrations where there is no definite straight lines and uses dull colours for backgrounds and brighter colours for the characters. The colour scheme used on the monsters combine hues that are stereotypical feminine or masculine such as Rowan who’s body is red and purple.
