The Muppet-like Goon is both goofy and adorable, and Trapani’s rhyming text bounces blithely along. A familiar message, but also a crucial and timely one, charmingly presented.

Synopsis

Monsters are real! But, so are little boys.
 
Gabe longs to encounter a real, live monster. And tonight’s his lucky night because hiding in Gabe's closet is real-live monster and easily spooked, Goon, wishes to keep away from the outside world— especially those scary little beings called children. When the two meet, Goon can't scare Gabe no matter how hard he tries. But an unsuccessful monster makes for a great friend when the boy is actually scared.
 
Best-selling author/illustrator Iza Trapani uses humorous rhyme to share a spirited story of unexpected friendship.
