Overview

It’s Up There is a rare story about love and courage. This lively but child-friendly thriller begins with an innovative little boy named Adrian, who conjures up a fantasy about avoiding afternoon naps. A vivid imagination, mythical characters, and unforeseen events force him into a scary scenario.

Adrian overcomes a terrifying experience and his fear of the dark by finding the courage to save his mother from a horrible, hairy, fictitious creature, which he mistakenly believes has captured her in the attic. Adrian’s story weaves in and out of whimsical subplots connecting the fabric of each anecdote, while highlighting themes that are constant in a child’s life.

The plot is based on a real event involving childhood mystery and adventure, as well as overcoming a common fear. There is also humor, fantasy, and the achievement of a heart-warming age-specific milestone. It’s Up There adds up to a rich tapestry of positive reinforcement that can help a child to creatively find the courage to do the right thing.

    A great book for children!

    This is a book intended for young children and it is meant to be read to them. The message for a young child is to look closely at the things that give so much fear and learn to recognize them for what they are. Then the fear will disappear. Adrian's love for his mother and his desire to protect her when he thought that she was in danger, allowed him to fight his fears and climb those dreaded steps to the attic. As Larry Alexander's first book of a series of books, this story is a great launching point for him. This book is a fine addition to the library of any parent or grandparent of a small child.
