J.N. (jncahill) | 3 comments I'm looking for a children's picture book I read in my childhood (early 1990s). I don't remember much except that it had a spooky theme to it and when turned upside down the pictures would create monsters out of ordinary things like a table of vegetables. I believe it may have had a boy as the main character.

Were the illustrations realistic, colorful, full page, etc?
Anything about the cover?

J.N. (jncahill) | 3 comments I'll check that out and see. I remember the illustrations being on the realistic side and while colorful, in a dark way. I believe they were full page. Unfortunately can't remember the cover at all.
