About the Author:

Frank Rodgers has written and illustrated a wide range of books for children. His work for Puffin includes the bestselling WITCH'S DOG and ROBODOG titles. He illustrates the popular MR MAJEIKA books as well as his own stories. He was an art teacher for a number of years before becoming an author and illustrator. He lives in Glasgow with his wife and two children.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- Robert's vivid imagination turns ordinary household items into scary things. Grandpa gives him a tip from his former lion-taming days: just imagine those creatures in funny, harmless ways. While riding the local carnival's Ghost Train, Robert has a chance to try that trick. While his friends run, terrified by the monsters, Robert pictures the creatures in their T-shirts and undershorts. Smiling and holding hands with a diapered creature, Robert shows that his imagination is well "in hand." Boldly crayoned cartoonlike drawings are most clever when the scary imaginings are closely related to ordinary things: the vacuum cleaner becomes a roaring dragon's tail; a teakettle provides the locomotive's steam; and fur coats look like bears. The final illustration doesn't deny the value of imagination--it just gives it the control sure to satisfy young monster-makers. --Jane Saliers, Atlanta Public Library
