From the creator of Goodnight Goon, a laugh-out-loud friendship story that perfectly captures the high and low moments of a typical playdate!

“Rex smartly teases out the will-he, won't-he just long enough. . .
. Little readers will be briefly flabbergasted and quite giggly.
Rex's clean-lined cartoons are beautifully paced. . . . A silly and
surprising picture book that will quickly join regular
“The hairy, snaggletoothed, horned monster who appears at Pete’s window isn’t some misunderstood creature in search of a friend, the kind of character that’s a fixture in so many children’s books. Nope, this monster has one goal in mind: ‘EAT PETE!’ . . . Readers should enjoy this clever tale from Rex (Goodnight Goon) about impulse control and its surprisingly sympathetic monster.”—Publishers Weekly
