About the Author

LISA MOSER received a degree in early education with a concentration in reading from the University of Iowa. She taught fifth grade and got the idea for THE MONSTER IN THE BACKPACK-- her first book -- seven years ago from one of her students, who couldn't open the zipper on her backpack. " 'There must be a monster in there, ' I told the girl, and then I began to think, 'What if there really was?' "

NOAH Z. JONES is the illustrator of NOT NORMAN: A GOLDFISH STORY by Kelly Bennett, his first children's book. Of THE MONSTER IN THE BACKPACK, he says, "I laughed out loud when I first read Lisa's story. I couldn't wait to start drawing. It was especially fun to create a monster who wasn't scary or mean but caused mischief unintentionally and with such gleeful abandon."

Reviews

Spirited and funny...an offbeat alternative to easy readers depicting more orthodox friendships.
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A funny book with brightly-colored, action-filled illustrations.
--Baton Rouge Advocate

Author Lisa Moser's training in elementary education and reading is obvious. She captures the mindset of her school-aged readers while using attainable vocabulary.
