Award-winning author Nicholas Tana presents his independently published picture books Monsters Are Afraid of Babies, The Kingdom of Glee, and The Kitten, The Cat & The Apple, while illustrator Matthew Molleur sketches for the kids!
A boy learns to face his fear of monsters after discovering that monsters are afraid of his baby sister. A mean wizard sends three monsters to torment the Kingdom of Glee led by King Gentle, with the hope of discovering why the people living there are so happy. A cat tries to entertain its bored and impatient kitten, leading to profound questions about the meaning of life, until eventually, both discover an obvious yet often overlooked answer. Tana is a self-described "author on a mission to inspire children and adults through stories that tackle issues of fear and anxiety, even existential boredom, in a way that children will enjoy and parents will appreciate."
