Jeremy Draws a Monster

By Peter McCarthy

Ages 4-8



Oh, No!

Not another scary monster story?

Ah, do not fret, this is a story about a young boy who likes to use his imagination and create his own friends.

But Oy, what happens when this friend is out of control?


This is a great story to use your imagination to, a lot of the text is symbolic and good for a discussion.

How do you think Jeremy feels?

What is the solution, if any, to this monster?

What would you have done?

This story is excellent for parents who want to introduce metaphoric conversations and like to fill in the blanks.

Hooray for big blue monsters!

I love this book to pieces, both because I love monsters (especially adorable ones) and because it reminds me of the classic children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson.
