Harry and the Monster by Sue Mongredien and Nick East

17950475
On Monday night, Harry had a bad dream – a bad, scary dream about a bad, scary monster.
"Roooaarr!" went the monster.
"Aargh!" shouted Harry, waking everyone up.
Summary From Little Tiger Press
One night, a monster stomps into Harry's dreams. The next day, Harry is scared to go to sleep. "If he comes back, just imagine him with pink pants on his head," suggests Mum. "He won't be scary then!" Can Mum's clever plan possibly work?
****
Harry's nightmares about a large, shaggy, purple monster are giving everyone disturbed nights and Mum and Dad try to help him overcome them. It takes a while but, in the end, their plan works in rather an unexpected way.
This book is fun from start to finish. It tackles a common problem – nightmares – with humour and lots of imagination. The story builds up bit by bit with
the sort of repetitions that make picture books work so well for young children. The illustrations are bright, funny and full of action, and the subject matter makes it perfect for children troubled by bad dreams. Come to think of it, it's pretty perfect for children who aren't troubled by bad dreams, too. And if you'd like to see a monster with pink pants on his head, then this is the book for you!
