I Need My Monster has been thoroughly vetted and approved by our children’s booksellers. The monster under Ethan’s bed (whose name is Gabe) has gone fishing — how will Ethan ever get to sleep without his nightly scare? Several other monsters audition for the job, but none are quite right. Noll gives the “monster under the bed” issue a whole new twist, funny with just the right touch of fright. Howard McWilliam’s absolutely gorgeous illustrations complement the story perfectly. This is a great book both for parents who are looking to help their kids cure night-time fears and for kids who like a little scare.
