Even Monsters Say Good Night

It's bedtime, and Avery hates bedtime. She is positive that there are monsters under her bed, especially on Halloween. Where else would all of those monsters sleep? After a thorough discussion with her mom about the monster situation, Avery finally goes to her room. Does she dare check under the bed? A mix of story text and speech bubbles blend seamlessly in this humorous bedtime tale that both parents and children will relate to.

San Francisco Book Review - Henry Herz

"The illustrations are appropriately dark without being depressing, and feature monsters without being scary. The variety of human and monster home scenes give author/illustrator Doreen Mulryan Marts plenty of opportunity to demonstrate her mastery of color and texture." - San Francisco Book Review

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"Avery doesn’t want to go to bed. She’s worried about the monsters under her bed and in the closet, too. Until her mom explains that monsters sleep in their own beds in their own houses. And Avery isn’t scared anymore. What a great way to help calm children’s nighttime fears, don’t you think?" - Imagination Soup
