Jeremy Draws a Monster
Alone in his room, Jeremy draws a monster. But then the monster wants lunch! As his creation takes over, Jeremy begins to wonder how he will ever get rid of the monstrous nuisance. He entertains his unwanted guest all day, but enough is enough. Jeremy finally draws him a bus ticket out of town!
With a sure artistic touch and more than a dose of humor, Peter McCarty cleverly blurs the line between his own drawings and Jeremy's, and in doing so subtly questions the line between reality and imagination.

Jeremy is too shy to play with the other kids in the neighborhood. He draws himself a companion who turns out to be a big problem. Finally, Jeremy finds a solution to his problem, and the courage to go make friends. Relates to "Harold and the Purple Crayon" and others such books. Read full review

The story in this book is extremely simple, almost to a fault. The end kind of falls flat for me. However, the illustrations help to make up for the lacking conclusion. The pictures are extremely detailed and interesting. This book would be excellent for a waiting room. Read full review
