A reimagining of Sesame Street‘s all-time best-selling picture book “The Monster at the End of This Book,” the special follows Grover‘s reluctant journey to the end of the story, where, based on the title, he believes a monster awaits. Drawn in the unmistakable style of the beloved book first published in 1971, the special adds new sequences, songs and surprises, and introduces other familiar Sesame Street characters, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and Rosita, to the tale.
“The Monster at the End of This Book” being read aloud by celebrities Kelsea Ballerini, Sofia Carson, Ciara, Stephen and Ayesha Curry, Josh Groban, Mykal-Michelle Harris, Lil Nas X, Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Maggie Rogers, Jordin Sparks, Hailee Steinfeld, Jason Sudeikis, Jonathan Van Ness, and Olivia Wilde.
After nearly 50 years, the lesson in ‘The Monster at the End of This Book’ remains timeless: It’s okay to feel afraid, but also important to have courage and keep moving forward in spite of those fears — Kay Wilson Stallings, Sesame Workshop’s Executive Vice President of Creative and Production
