What do you do when no one can see your monsters but you? At first, Molly runs from them. But they follow her down the sidewalk, getting in the way when she tries to make a new friend, popping up unexpectedly out of shadows, and multiplying. Until finally…Molly faces her fears. Author-illustrator Brooke Boynton-Hughes delivers a modern classic in this moving adventure that honors everyday acts of bravery and the power of friendship to banish the monsters that haunt us.
I think this book would be great for children of all ages that are working through issues of shyness, anxiety, fear, etc. It is nearly wordless, but I think it will speak volumes to those who are struggling with shyness and trying to overcome.
