A monstrously fun story that puts a wholesome twist on a familiar fear.

Blossom loves jumping snake, swimming in the bog, and playing slime ball. She doesn’t love the creepy sounds above her bed that no one else seems to notice.

Determined to get to the top of it once and for all, Blossom hatches a plan that leads her to find courage…and a new friend.

This is a wholesome twist on a familiar fear that will make you wonder—what do the monsters under our beds think about us?

Praise For…

A fun look at monsters above and below the bed.  — Kirkus Reviews

This book will provide a terrific opportunity to discuss what happens when we face our fears and work through what’s actually behind them. Cheerful digital illustrations give this a Saturday morning cartoon vibrance, and the monster family is notably not scary. Completely charming! For everyone who has tried to help a young one face those bedtime monster fears, this offers a pretty good answer. — School Library Journal
