Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two world-renowned children's book creators, Richard Peck and Don Freeman, collaborated on this picture book-the evocative tale of a boy who takes on the monster lurking in his grandma's home. This was one of Don Freeman's last books-after Corduroy, after Dandelion, after he'd won a Caldecott Honor for Fly High Fly Low. It is novelist Richard Peck's only picture book. He wrote Monster Night about twenty-five years before he won a Newbery Honor for A Long Way from Chicago, before he won the Newbery Medal for A Year Down Yonder.

Now their beguiling collaboration is once again available, and includes a new introduction, full of warmth and reminiscence, by Richard Peck. It's a classic treat-a deliciously spooky journey through darkness into the comforting, clear light of day.

Illustrated by Don Freeman.

Synopsis:

First published in the 1970s, this rediscovered gem is the evocative tale of a boy who takes on the monster lurking in his grandmother's home. Includes a new Introduction by Peck. Illustrations.
