Synopsis

Where did all these monsters come from?
The closet, the basement, under the bed, the outhouse, even the school furnace room! But mostly, they came from a healthy imagination, just like yours!
Using a patented system of made-up facts and educated guesses, Everything I Know About Monsters reveals all the gory details about creatures of creepiness: what they eat (dirty socks), what's in their brains (not much), and how to scare them out of the basement (stand at the top of the stairs, bang pots and pans together, and yell very loudly).
So turn on all the lights in the house and get comfortable. You're about to learn so much about monsters, it's scary!
 

About Tom Lichtenheld

See more books from this Author
Tom Lichtenheld has always enjoyed getting other people's kids all wound-up and silly, then sending them back home to their parents. One day, he realized he could get lots of other people's kids all wound-up and silly by writing children's books. His first book, Everything I Know About Pirates, received many rave reviews, and was selected by Newsweek magazine as one of the best children's books of 2000. Tom's favorite review is from a lady who said the book was so funny it made her snort iced tea out her nose, which he considers the highest praise a children's book could ask for. Tom lives in Illinois with his wife, Jan, their unusually hairy cat, Bruce, and a wide assortment of monsters.

He traces the evolution of the pirate flag (the ""1620 Hot Dog and Crossbones"" was an abject failure, due to the fact that it was ""not very scary""), and provides a handy do-it-yourself pirate name chart (because the pirates are ""not going to let you in with a name like Nathan or Ashley"").
