Brilliant and hilarious, full of monsters and disbelieving grown-ups - and back in print at last.

If your child draws, he (possibly also she, but it's a book about a boy who draws boy pictures) will love it. The text is beautifully written and very funny, all about how adults worry about their children (and in this case, they should worry, as the monster the boy draws comes alive and eats the child psychologist...). Quentin Blake's pastiches of childrens' art are wonderful and hilarious.

My kids thoroughly enjoyed this book. i think all parents should purchase this item and use frequently. Their kids will never again be afraid of monsters. They will see that inside everything is kind and easy to draw for that matter.
