“A fun adventure with cute illustrations. Grub faces his fears of the unknown and discovers the power of friendship, when the little monsters and humans (and a chatty cat) work together to overcome the real threat lurking in the forest. A great story to share with your kid/s.” ~ Carrie, Goodreads Reviewer
“Thoroughly delightful! Are there humans hiding beneath the bed, there to frighten young monsters? Perhaps!
“This well told and illustrated story examines why things we don’t understand are scary. Filled with great characters and wonderful plot.” ~ Saundra, Goodreads Reviewer
