Do Not Go in There
Author: Ariel Horn; illustrated by Izzy Burton
Do Not Go in There! is an encouraging picture book from debut author Ariel Horn and illustrator Izzy Burton that highlights the power of imagination while touching on themes of anxiety, curiosity, and bravery.
Monsters Morton and Bogart are best friends. But they don't always see eye to eye.
So when they encounter a closed door, anxious Bogart wants to keep it closed, because there must be something really bad on the other side. But Morton thinks it'll be something amazing! Which is it?
Through bright, expressive illustrations, readers learn that, while not knowing can be frightening, being brave can lead to new discoveries. And even though your imagination can make it easy to worry, it can also make life better, less scary, and more fun.

"Speaks directly to young readers whose fears of the unknown can sometimes overwhelm their innocent imaginations....Tender, reassuring, and lots of fun." -- Kirkus
"[The] candy-colored silliness is well choreographed, showing that while the two friends may have opposing temperaments, they can definitely share a vivid imagination. Horn makes a fine picture book debut, with text that practically begs to be read aloud." -- Publishers Weekly
