This is an enchanting book about Hanaa, a young girl, who is scared of monsters. Every time she goes to sleep, she is worried that the monster is going to come after her. So, she leaves the light on in her bedroom because she believes that the monster hates light. But one night, when the monster comes out and she really sees him directly, she surprisingly befriends him. She discovers that he isn’t as scary as he seemed. In fact, he was just lonely, and he kept visiting her because he wanted to have a friend he could hang out with.
This is a wonderfully illustrated story about overcoming our worse fears. Many times, a child’s fears are so overblown and unrealistic. Almost every child is scared of monsters. But not every child overcomes this fear as easily as Hanaa did in the book. This book should help kids overcome the fear of monsters.
One additional important theme in the story is that what we think about grows. So, if we think of scary things, we become sad and scary. In other words, our thoughts create our lives and our happiness. We have that much control over ourselves. What a great message for kids. My niece loved the book. She is also scared of monsters at night. So, this book helped her a lot.
