RWYK Interview with Tamara Hecht, Author of Monsterville Books

Hey listeners, Welcome to #1 iTunes Kids and Family Podcast “Reading With Your Kids!!!”

Today we have wonderful Tamara Hecht joining us on the podcast. She is the author of the Middle-Grade series Monsterville Books. It is a series about a secret town that is just for MONSTERS!

Tamara’s first book Welcome to Monsterville is about the main character arriving in the aforementioned all-monster town. Because she is the first human kid ever to live there, she has some trouble with making friends at first.  The whole first story is about the funny and awkward miscommunications between Jen and the monster kids as they get to know each other.

Tune in for this fun-filled episode!


Here’s a note from Tamara Hecht

Tamara Hecht

Hey, how’s it going?  I’m Tamara Hecht.  I write the Monsterville books. 

My passion for monsters runs deep.  I love it all; monster movies, monster mythology, and monster art.  To me, monsters are special because they’re expressions of our most human traits, and yet, at the same time, more extraordinary than any real person could be.  That’s why I love writing stories about them.
