Summary

Jeremy draws a monster . . . but he doesn't expect it to be bored and hungry--and bossy. With a sure artistic touch and more than a dose of humor, McCarty cleverly blurs the line between his own drawings and Jeremy's, and in doing so subtly questions the line between reality and imagination. Full color.

Table of Contents

“Tired of having only imaginary companions, Jeremy seeks out real friends, in this marvelous and comic tale of the consolations and limits of our imaginations.”—New York Times Book Review

“With simplicity and quiet depth, a boy creates a challenge and meets it… Neat and unassuming.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Both story and illustration leave lots of room for speculation and discussion; children will love to pore over the endpapers, as well.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“The finely rendered pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations skillfully delineate characters and objects, which stand out against full-page white spaces, most impressively with the blue, blobby, squiggly, horned monster himself. A topnotch Harold and the Purple Crayon for a new generation.”—Booklist

“[An] inventive story with fabulous illustrations.”—San Francisco Chronicle
