9780140548136: There's Something in My Attic

Uh-oh, there might be something creeping around in the attic. Could it be a monster?

After a little girl hears something snooping around in the attic when she’s sleeping, she decides to investigate. How can she sleep when something is making creaking noises and stealing her toys when she’s not looking? 


"In typically zany Mayer fashion, an intrepid girl confronts a resident nightmare with delightfully unexpected results."—Publishers Weekly

"The story is satisfying, humorous, possibly bibliotherapeutic, and significantly different from previous titles to justify making room on the shelf for this nightmare as well."—School Library Journal

About the Author:

Mercer Mayer began writing and illustrating children’s books in 1966, and since then, he has published over 300 titles. Readers can open any of his award-winning books and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters. Drawing from his own childhood adventures for inspiration, Mayer created one of children’s books’ most cherished characters, Little Critter. He lives in Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Mayer's third book about nightmares features a feisty girl in blonde pigtails, nightgown, cowboy hat, and boots. When Mom and Dad don't believe that there's a nightmare in the attic, she decides to lasso it and bring it downstairs to show them. The fat friendly dragon-like monster appears with the girl's teddy bear and won't give it back. She pulls it down with the lasso to her parent's room, but it slips away, and she vows to retrieve her bear tomorrow. The predominately blue watercolors with black pen are not as refined as those in Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Dial, 1968). The outline and cross-hatching are thicker and resemble the illustrations in Mayer's There's an Alligator Under My Bed (Dial, 1987). The format remains large with creative use of white space and frames. The nightmare is a cream puff of a creature with child-like facial expressions. The story is satisfying, humorous, possibly bibliotherapeutic, and significantly different from previous titles to justify making room on the shelf for this nightmare as well.
