New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow and illustrator Matt Rockefeller present a sweetly scary picture book about a girl whose monster-catching activities delay her bedtime in Poesy the Monster Slayer.
A monster slayer needs no bedtime!
Once her parents are off to bed, Poesy excitedly awaits the monsters that creep into her room. With the knowledge shes gained from her trusty Monster Book and a few of her favorite toys, Poesy easily fends off a werewolf, a vampire, and much more.
But not even Poesy's bubblegum perfume can defeat her sleep-deprived parents!
"Assured panels by Rockefeller (Pop!) combine frilly with threatening, illuminated by eerie light sources. Doctorow, making his picture book debut, strikes a gently edgy tone..."Publisher's Weekly
"Featuring energetic dialogue, an exciting plot, and a close-knit multiracial family, Doctorows story is bolstered by Rockefellers deliciously detailed, dark-but-glowing illustrations."Booklist
"Poesy is irresistible with her brave, two-sided personality...Rockefellers gently colored cartoon art enhances her bravery with creepily drawn night creatures and lively, expressive faces."Kirkus
