About the Author

Rachel Bright is a wordsmith, printmaker, and thinker of happy thoughts. The author-illustrator of Love Monster, Love Monster and the Perfect Present, and Love Monster and the Last Chocolate, she is passionate about time-honored printmaking techniques. She works from her converted caravan studio, on a farm near the sea in the south of England, where she lives with her partner; her daughter, River; a dog called Elvis, and a cat called Superman.

Reviews

"Bright's text and her illustrations perfectly capture the terrifying, compounding fear of being alone at night, hearing an unfamiliar noise, and jumping to wild conclusions. The mostly full-page spreads play up Love Monster's fears and feelings, and Bright uses light and darkness to good effect.Yet another outing that will have readers empathizing with and maybe emulating Love Monster." --Kirkus

"Many children will empathize with Love Monster's plight as he tries to fall asleep and the sounds around him translate into something monstrous. Bright's unique illustrations, created with a technique called solar etching, emphasize the shadows when appropriate, spilling font across the page in a rippling movement that begs to be read aloud... An endearing first purchase for most collections and a welcome addition to storytimes."--SLJ
