Hyperion Books for Children, 1994 - Komodo dragon - 32 pages
When George finds large muddy tracks on the stairs to the cellar and hears crunching noises, he runs and tells his mom there's a dragon on the loose. Remembering last week's monsters, his mom just sighs and tells George, "You'll just have to get rid of it". The silliness and suspense of George's battle is delightfully depicted in bold, full-color art.
