Praise For The Monster Returns

“The pacing is superb and invites viewers to linger over each page. This is an engaging celebration of artistic imagination and friendship.” --School Library Journal "McCarty’s story is Hitchcockian in its suspense, as the monster, wearing a pink hat and carrying a brown suitcase, makes his way to Jeremy’s door. Once again, the monster proves that he knows exactly how to shift Jeremy’s quiet life into unexpected territory." --Publishers Weekly, Starred review “…satisfies in its supply of companionship all around.” --Kirkus Reviews
