Praise For…

“Kids will likely have a ball monsterating Edgar themselves.” —Booklist

“A five-creature partitioned flipbook creatively extends the humorous tale so readers can "monsterate" Edgar themselves” —The Horn Book

“In this fiendishly fun novelty book, Master Edgar Dreadbury is suitably bored by typical Halloween attire and chooses to bypass his usual costume store the The Monster Shop . . . The true pleasure and surprise of this book are the final pages that serve as a flip toy, allowing youngsters to "monsterate" Edgar themselves.” —School Library Journal

“*Graves dares here to explore a child's dark side, and the result is a refreshingly original yet wondrously creepy tale . . . A true monstrous success.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

“Despite the gray fog that hovers over everything, Graves's acrylic paintings are funnier than they are scary, full of guaranteed child-pleasers like Edgar chowing down on spaghetti and meatballs out of a dog dish.” —Publishers Weekly
