This classic interactive book that has been helping children chase away nighttime fears for 25 years is perfect for Halloween--and all-year round!
Caldecott Award-winner Ed Emberley has created an ingenious way for children to overcome bedtime frights.

Then, when they're ready to show him who's in charge, they'll turn the remaining pages and watch him disappear!
Ed Emberley's groundbreaking book about mastering fear and emotion through play and imagination has been a bestselling favorite for decades and feels as fresh and innovative today as it did 25 years ago.

Review quote

Praise for Go Away, Big Green Monster!
"The Caldecott Medalist makes wonderful use of innovative production techniques in this ingenious offering... A joy to read aloud, the simple story entertains even as it helps its audience master common fears. Emberley's striking approach should win him new fans aplenty." - Publishers Weekly "A graphic delight... This imaginative, original work is a most friendly way in which children can take control over their own 'monsters' or nightmares." - School Library Journal

"This striking picture book takes a hands-on approach to dealing with nighttime fears. In fact, it may be hard for parents to pry their kids' hands "off" the book and get them to bed... this picture book promises to jazz up any story time and to give individual children a measure of control over at least 'one' monster." - Booklist
