One night, when Ethan checks under the bed for his monster, he finds a note instead: "Gone fishing. Back in a week. -Gabe" What will Ethan do? He needs a monster under his bed. How is he supposed to get to sleep if his monster is gone?
This new children's book app is based on the bestselling "I Need My Monster" which has won prestigious awards, received critical acclaim, and captured the hearts of children, parents, teachers, and librarians.
Children can join the fun and help Ethan uncover the perfect monster from among all the silly scary substitute monsters that appear in his room.
When children tap on the monsters, they gnash their teeth, drool green ooze, and reveal their claws, but these wacky monsters won't really scare anyone. Especially not Ethan, who just wants his own perfect monster.
Readers are invited to shake, tilt, and tap the device to make monsters appear and disappear, change the monsters' costumes, turn lights on and off, and in a game of dexterity, to try to hide all the monster tails under the bed. And much, much more...

Critical acclaims for the print edition: "[a] monster tale so sly it oozes excellence... irresistible exquisitely creepy...." the Sacramento Bee "a fun nighttime read for those who enjoy a bit of shiver as they are tucked in to bed" -School Library Journal " The humorous text diffuses bedtime fears... digitally painted illustrations bring the sort-of-scary, mostly-silly monsters out of their lairs." the Horn Book "In this humorous, comically exaggerated reversal of the usual fear of monsters there is plenty of good-natured scary stuff." -Children's Literature
