The Monster Returns

Peter McCarty. Holt, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-8050-9030-7
One day when Jeremy is drawing alone in his apartment, the blue, spiky monster that he created in Jeremy Draws a Monster calls him from a telephone booth: “I’m coming back.... And I’m bored!” Thinking quickly, Jeremy arms his young neighbors with fancy pens and they craft a menagerie of additional monsters. McCarty’s story is Hitchcockian in its suspense, as the monster, wearing a pink hat and carrying a brown suitcase, makes his way to Jeremy’s door. Once again, the monster proves that he knows exactly how to shift Jeremy’s quiet life into unexpected territory. Ages 3–6. (Jan.)
