Paddy loved his grandfather, but he wasn't sure about staying at his house by himself. As night fell, Paddy's fears grew ... especially after he heard a monster. So Pop and Paddy started building traps, each one becoming more sophisticated in hopes the could catch them. What would happen if one really worked?
You could have lots of fun thinking about and creating stories about the monsters in your home ... and how you would trap them!

Started reading with 5-year-old child.
Buy! This is a fun bedtime story. It has monsters (which kids love) but turns the table on them making way for a positive response when you turn out the lights.
This was a must-read in our house for several weeks; even well past Halloween.
What a fun story. Even after LOTS and LOTS of reading, we continued to enjoy reading this book. The dark illustrations lend both to the setting and suspense of the story.
The story and illustrations combine to make a whimsical, creative take on that age-old problem of monsters coming out at night.
