Thea Dewhickey knows just what she wants to be for Halloween-the scariest monster in the whole wide world. But her parents don't think she can win the costume contest dressed as a monster. They want her to dress up as a beautiful butterfly or an exotic Spanish dancer. Thea couldn't care less about the contest, but her parents won't listen to her protests. Luckily, there's someone who can help make everyone happy . . . Grandma! Pamela Mayer's lively text and Lydia Monks' wacky, outrageous artwork combine to create an offbeat Halloween offering that's sure to please.

This is Pamela Mayer's first children's book. Lydia Monks' illustrations have been called "zippy...witty...endearingly goofy." (Publishers Weekly)From Publishers Weekly:
Thea made a darling fairy last Halloween, a runner-up for the costume prize, and this year her parents envision her winning as a butterfly or dancer. Thea sees herself more as a chartreuse Godzilla with "blood dripping off the corners of my mouth, and maybe even an ax coming out of my head." In Monks's (The Cat Barked?) witty mixed-media collages, the heroine finds a kindred spirit in her witchy grandmother, who wisely stitches the trophy-coveting parents a pair of prize-winning costumes. Like Hoodwinked (reviewed above), Mayer's debut supports unconventional girls. Ages 4-8.
