About the Book:
Seth Freeman awakens from nightmare, "heart trip-hammering in his bony chest like a panicked sparrow bashing its head against the unyielding clear walls of an imprisoning glass atrium." The boy may very well wish that he'd stayed asleep, given the fact that there is a monster under his bed, a strangely loquacious and insistent monster with an urgent message for one gnomish-framed, sweat-soaked sufferer of night terrors . . .
