    Amanda Noll is a writer. She lives in Spanaway, Washington. Howard McWilliamhas won awards for his artwork, including National Young Cartoonist of the Year (UK), and has contributed art to a wide range of magazines and newspapers including,Child Education, The Daily Telegraph, Nursery Education, and The Week.

    A unique monster-under-the-bed story with the perfect balance of giggles and shivers, this picture book relies on the power of humor over fear, appeals to a child’s love for creatures both alarming and absurd, and glorifies the scope of a child’s imagination. One night, when Ethan checks under his bed for his monster, Gabe, he finds a note from him instead: "Gone fishing. Back in a week." Ethan knows that without Gabe’s familiar nightly scares he doesn't stand a chance of getting to sleep, so Ethan interviews potential substitutes to see if they've got the right equipment for the job—pointy teeth, sharp claws, and a long tail—but none of them proves scary enough for Ethan. When Gabe returns sooner than expected from his fishing trip, Ethan is thrilled. It turns out that Gabe didn't enjoy fishing because the fish scared too easily.

      Verified Purchase

      This is by far one of the cutest children's books I have seen in a long time. The story deals with monsters in a cute way instead of being scary it makes having a monster under your bed seem necessary. It is such and endearing book about the boy's love for his monster.
