Grades K-2
In a tale that's a little reminiscent of "Monsters, Inc.," Ethan has just discovered that the monster that inhabits the area underneath his bed has taken off for a week's vacation. How is he supposed to get to sleep without his monster there? What's to keep him in bed if there's no threat of sharp claws and equally sharp teeth and oozy slime? Several replacement monsters show up over the course of the evening, but there's something wrong with each one: no sharp claws on one; nail polish on the claws of the second; a bow on the tail of the third. Ethan is starting to despair of ever getting to sleep when his own monster Gabe returns. Kids will enjoy how the author turns scary monster stories on their ear, and will wish for their own monster under the bed.
