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
