Product Details

Praise

“Plenty of Halloween stories deal with fear, but debut author Richards suggests that bravery has its own pitfalls. . . Neubecker’s pen-and-ink cartoons draw a good amount of fun out of the relationship between the put-upon narrator and the wide-eyed, well-meaning beasties.” —Publishers Weekly

“Intrepid monster lovers will delight in reading again and again this lift of irksome consequences of being friendly with these creatures. The watercolor and pen cartoons do not miss a mark . . . The nighttime flash-lit illustrations are superb, as are the dynamic layouts. . . Recommend this one to mischievous types of all shapes and sizes . . .” —School Library Journal

“The problem with not being scared of monsters, our young narrator finds, is that monsters become entirely too comfortable with you, and those monsters can be some pesky pals. . . The simple and spare text renders the challenges of monstrous pals understandable. . . Tentacled and fanged monsters made silly with glibness reminiscent of Dr. Seuss’ There’s a Wocket in My Pocket will leave kids smiling after a monster-themed storytime.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Book
