About this title

Synopsis:

Red sees a scary monster in the dark basement and is chased out of the house, into the park, through the jungle, up a tall building, and into space--and then it is her turn to chase the monster.

From Publishers Weekly:

It all starts when Red, a carrot-topped girl, tiptoes into the dark basement, represented by brightly hued, cheery toys silhouetted against a black background: "You never know when a scary monster might jump out, she thought./ Just then, she saw one!" The chase is on, as a big blue creature with yellow horns (who bears more of resemblance to a plush toy than a fearsome bogeyman) appears from the half-light to pursue Red over, under and through both real-life and fanciful landscapes. Red never loses her cool, though: she rides a zebra through the jungle with aplomb and even scales a skyscraper (the illustration is printed sideways to emphasize the height of her achievement). When her pursuer finally "catches" her, the monster turns out to be Mom in a costume--and now it's Red's turn to gleefully chase her. British author/artist Lia knows just how to pitch suspense for young audiences: as the excitement builds, her plucky heroine, caption-like text and na?f-style illustrations will assure even youngest readers that Red is never really in peril. A giddy roller-coaster ride--with training wheels. Ages 3-7. (Apr.)
