Alone in his room, Jeremy draws amonster. But then themonster wants lunch! As his creation takes over, Jeremy begins to wonder how he will ever get rid of themonstrous nuisance.He entertains his unwanted guest all day, but enough is enough. Jeremy finally draws him a bus ticket out of town!

With a sure artistic touch and more than a dose of humor, Peter McCarty cleverly blurs the line between his own drawings and Jeremy’s, and in doing so subtly questions the line between reality and imagination.

Praise for Jeremy Draws a Monster

“Tired of having only imaginary companions, Jeremy seeks out real friends, in this marvelous and comic tale of the consolations and limits of our imaginations.”—New York Times Book Review

“With simplicity and quiet depth, a boy creates a challenge and meets it… Neat and unassuming.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Both story and illustration leave lots of room for speculation and discussion; children will love to pore over the endpapers, as well.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“The finely rendered pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations skillfully delineate characters and objects, which stand out against full-page white spaces, most impressively with the blue, blobby, squiggly, horned monster himself. A topnotch Harold and the Purple Crayon for a new generation.”—Booklist

“[An] inventive story with fabulous illustrations.”—San Francisco Chronicle
