Luisa came home from school, like she did every day. Her house looked peaceful and quiet. But when Luisa opened the door, she found herself toe to toe with a monster! "I'm going to crunch, to munch, to eat you for my lunch!" shrieked the monster. "Help!" said Luisa ...

Back from school, Luisa finds a monster at home that gets bigger when it frightens her, and smaller as she has the courage to face it. Like many children faced with returning home to an empty house, the protagonist of this story will discover that the fearful monsters sometimes lurking there can be quelled by drawing upon an inner strength.

Marisa Moss lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband and their son.
