Go Away, Big Green Monster!

Go Away, Big Green Monster!

by Ed Emberley Illustrated by Ed Emberley

Caldecott medalist Ed Emberley has designed an ingenious book to help children overcome their fear of monsters. With each turn of the page, a new part is revealed, until all of a big, green monster has taken shape. Then, with the words, "You don't scare me!," page by page, the monster slowly disappears.
