Synopsis: Kate learns how her imagination can turn make-believe monsters into make-believe friends when she starts sleeping in a new room that has a little door leading to a mysterious attic.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 1?"In Kate's new room there was a door, small and curious as Kate herself." So begins the child's struggle to overcome her fears of the night creatures she imagines lurking in the attic. First her father, then her mother responds to Kate's calls, each time transforming the colors of the room from a menacing purply-black to a soothing peach. Both parents advise her, "If you can think them up, then you can think them out." As her room darkens a third time and giants crawl out of the door, plucky Kate commands them to "STOP!" and they retreat. The triumphant child then reconjures all the monsters, but this time as friendly companions. Complementary illustrations of pencil and watercolor, with expressive details such as the moonlight shining through Kate's window or the owl in the picture frame whose expressions change to mirror the girl's feelings, provide an alternately spooky and peaceful backdrop to the pleasing text. Kate's powers of imagination resemble Max's, and several frames bear a striking resemblance to certain illustrations in Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are (1963) and We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy (1993, both HarperCollins). An enchanting read-aloud or lap book depicting a situation familiar to most young children.?Tana Elias, Meadowridge Branch Library, Madison, WI
