Anyone recall title of monster book illustrated in green and black? Was for children.

It's from the late 1960s or early 1970s. My searches for "How to make a monster" didn't yield much but I was so certain that that was the title.

It looks sort of glow in the dark.

Me too. Norman Bridwell had a kind of quietly amusing subversive humor (which I'm not entirely sure has been carried through into the modern Clifford the Big Red Dog stuff).

I built a boat. Spelljammer pictures here.


Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.
