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.

Larry Alexander is retired and lives in Houston. He wrote this story many years ago when his son made a constant plea for "one more story" at nap or bedtime. He has many other Adrian stories to tell.
