Nine-year-old Lucas is captain of the football team and he’s not afraid of anything
…except the monster under his bed!!
When Lucas’s parents won’t believe that he’s in danger, he turns to his best friend for advice only to have his secret overheard by Emily, the class chatterbox. By lunchtime, the news has spread. At first embarrassed, Lucas discovers that most kids share his fear and none more than Martin, the new boy. The boys pair up and, to their astonishment, catch their first monster. But the next day, Martin’s parents go missing and the trail of clues leads under Martin’s bed.
Almost by accident, Lucas and Martin team up with chatterbox Emily and the only two kids who don’t believe in monsters. When they crawl under Martin’s bed, there’s no going back. And unless they find a way to work together, nobody will make it home alive.
A story of diversity, friendship and bravery that unfolds as a group of unlikely friends rise above their fears and come to appreciate their differences.
Creatively illustrated, and told from the point of view of Lucas and Martin, this is a book you won’t want to put down.
