Review quote

Striking mixed-media illustrations in a dark blue palette provide a strong sense of Avi's fear. They create an ambiance that works well with the spare text, just scary enough for older preschoolers and early elementary-age kids. The illustrations show both siblings with dark hair and pale skin. The rather abrupt ending reveals that Swati has secretly written the Night Monster's letters to help Avi combat his fear of the dark. Winner of the 2017 Jarul Book Children's Choice Award in India, 2017, this kind and playful book may help young readers like Avi to understand and overcome this nearly universal childhood fear.
