Item description for No Such Thing by Jackie French Koller & Betsy Lewin...
Overview Howard and the monster under his bed decide on a plan to convince their mothers that both of them have reason to be afraid after dark.
Publishers Description There is no such thing as a monster, and certainly no such thing as a monster under the bed. That's what Howard's mother tells him. There is no such thing as a boy, and certainly no such thing as a boy on top of a bed. That's what Monster's mother tells him. But no matter what their mothers say, Howard and Monster remain afraid of the dark. Then one spooky night Howard and Monster come face-to-face with each other. Jackie French Koller and Betsy Lewin have created a "monster-under-the-bed" story that offers the perfect cure for fear of the dark.

good book Feb 15, 2007
Entertaining, funny book about a serious issue for parents. Definitely worth a read, especially if your child is afraid of the dark and monsters under the bed.
Find a Friend Under the Bed! Sep 8, 2006
My son was scared at Halloween by older kids in a costume. We got him this book to help discuss monsters and help him get over his fear. Anytime we want to discuss monsters, we pull out this book and use it to talk about his fears.
Will not read this to my children Feb 4, 2005
There is no monsters!!! This book will make your kids think there are really monsters living under their beds. Bad idea!!!
