Tiger is a very lucky kid: she has a monster living under her bed. Every night, Tiger and Monster play games until it's time for lights out. Of course, Monster would never try to scare Tiger — that's not what best friends do. But Monster needs to scare someone: it's a monster, after all. So while Tiger sleeps, Monster scares all of her nightmares away. Thanks to her friend, Tiger has nothing but good dreams.
But waiting in the darkness is a nightmare so big and mean that Monster can't fight it alone. Only teamwork and a lot of bravery can chase this nightmare away. In this charming graphic novel for young readers, cartoonist Emily Tetri proves that unlikely best friends can be an unbeatable team, even against the scariest monsters.
"It’s a story about fear, both the way it can paralyze ('Nope,' says Monster, hunched miserably under Tiger’s covers) and the way it can be overcome ('You’re in my head! You’re not real!' Tiger yells at the specter). Newcomer Tetri’s pencil-and-watercolor panels capture Tiger’s engaging, cublike features and daytime world in warm shades of gold and olive, while the epic battles that rage at night wash across the page in tidal sweeps of gray and blue.... Seamless visual storytelling and an impressive emotional range make this a notable debut." — Publishers Weekly
