After birthing a monster by drawing it (and then cleverly dispatching it by drawing a bus ticket) in Jeremy Draws a Monster (2009), Jeremy gets an unwelcome phone call. “I’m coming back,” says the monster, this time outfitted with a pink hat and a gray convertible. “And I’m bored!” Jeremy gathers the friends he made last time, and they each draw a new monster so that the returning beast won’t be lonely. As before, great white spaces give the affair an absurd, floating feel, especially effective when McCarty reveals the six new monsters, all of whom are ready to begin the wild rumpus. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel Kraus
“The pacing is superb and invites viewers to linger over each page. This is an engaging celebration of artistic imagination and friendship.” ―School Library Journal
“McCarty's story is Hitchcockian in its suspense, as the monster, wearing a pink hat and carrying a brown suitcase, makes his way to Jeremy's door. Once again, the monster proves that he knows exactly how to shift Jeremy's quiet life into unexpected territory.” ―Publishers Weekly, Starred review
“…satisfies in its supply of companionship all around.” ―Kirkus Reviews
