"This is a great way to start talking to young children about their fears and the monsters they become in their imaginations." — Kirkus

CAUTION: Monsters not as scary as they appear!

We all know about the monsters that lurk under the bed and in the closet, but there are many other fears that children face every day, such as, loud noises, spooky shadows, or the unknown in the dark.

This clever story encourages children to take control of their fears by giving them names and reimagining them as friends, not foes.

When I was young, I had many fears,
Like darkness or storms in the sky.
But then I learned when you meet your monsters,
You can make them friends if you try!
