Best-selling illustrator Howard Fine teams up with Mary Beth Lundgren to create a not-too-scary bedtime book about monsters. When the lights go off and seven scary monsters come out to make mischief, a young boy uses his imagination to eliminate them, one by one. Using monster-zapping inventions made from objects in his room, the boy finds the confidence to conquer what frightens him most. This funny and reassuring book, with its spirited rhymed text and humorous illustrations depicting a cast of lovable creatures, is a surefire weapon against a common childhood fear.
