Praise For The Monster Returns (Jeremy and the Monster)

“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
