monster-friendLouis, a young fox and his family have moved to a new home.  During his first night in his new room, he discovers a monster living under his bed, who is more afraid of monsters than Louis.  Soon the big, one-eyed green, fur-ball becomes part of the family.  Together they conquer their fears; monsters at bed time, making new friends and shyness.  The watercolor illustrations and endpapers are soft and appealing.  The concepts and metaphors in this story are appropriately conveyed, and are not didactic. A good storytime book, or one-on-one read.
