Best-selling illustrator Howard Fine teams up with Mary Beth Lundgren to create a not-too-scary bedtime book about monsters. When the lights go off and seven scary monsters come out to make mischief, a young boy uses his imagination to eliminate them, one by one. Using monster-zapping inventions made from objects in his room, the boy finds the confidence to conquer what frightens him most. This funny and reassuring book, with its spirited rhymed text and humorous illustrations depicting a cast of lovable creatures, is a surefire weapon against a common childhood fear.

Howard Fine is the illustrator of many popular picture books. He lives with his family in White Plains, New York.Visit his website at www.howardfineillustration.com.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-The illustrator of Margie Palatini's Piggie Pie! (Clarion, 1995) again struts his imaginative stuff with a mishmash of fiends ranging from a blue-jeaned cyclops with lobster claws to an alligator in a green fright wig. The narrator relays in rhyme the reasons and methods for dispensing with these pests, in descending order from seven to one. When number six rips a book, the boy sucks him up in a vacuum. Another tool is a "monster shooter" made of a flashlight taped to a baseball bat. As each creature disappears, the boy shouts "Rick! Rack! Wrinkleshack! Don't you dare come back!" a fine refrain for storyhour participation. However, Lundgren's rhythms often falter, and she uses sound effects to fill in when a rhyme scheme gets tough. Since youngsters are mad for monsters, this mischievous romp may find an audience for the illustrations alone.
