About the Author:

Marisa Moss lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband and their son. She graduated with a degree in Art History from the University of California at Berkeley, although her fascination with stories and words led her to study five languages as well. She has written and illustrated several children's books.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- After school, Luisa meets a towering, fierce purple creature waiting right inside the door of her apartment. "I'm going to pluck you like a rose. I'm going to chew off your nose. I'm going to gobble up your toes," it says. At first she is fearful, then she scolds, and finally she stages a direct confrontation: "I'm strong too! Strong inside, where you can't get me!" At that, the monster begins to shrink, and soon he is a limp, purple rag that she tosses in the garbage. The language is lively, playful, and concise. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations convey both mood and action in an attractive and appealing way. While this volume could be faulted for its touch of didacticism, or because children old enough to be alone after school are probably too old to relate to the monster metaphor and/or the picture-book format, on the whole, its virtues outweigh its flaws. It is refreshing to see a story set in a vibrant, Hispanic, inner-city neighborhood that does not focus on poverty or social problems. --Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
