"Tiger is a very lucky kid: she has a monster living under her bed. Every night, Tiger and Monster play games until it's time for lights out.

Adorable! Squee! Love! A wonderful tale told with words and pictures of friendship between two unlikely beasts. ***Spoiler alert: I love pages 60-61 where Tiger and Monster celebrate their victory over Tiger's nightmares.

Once again :01 First Second has published a story and graphic novel I just adore. This time, it's an adorable story of a little tiger and her monster friend as they work to fend off the nightmares that visit Tiger every night. Fashioned like a comic book, this is a wonderful transition between picture books and tougher graphic novels.
