About The Book

An unusual friendship between Molly and her monster, Nightmare, who learn to love one another over the course of an entire lifetime.

Molly’s not like other girls…she wants a monster under her bed!

She’s lonely at school, so she decides to bring a friend. A big friend. A big, scary friend. She summons a monster called Nightmare, who tries his hardest to scare her—but he just can’t! Nightmare doesn’t understand why Molly is not frightened of him…but soon Molly and Nightmare become great friends, and go on many adventures together. And he promises to protect her from the things that do scare her, like loneliness and snapping turtles.

Molly & Nightmare is the story of a girl who turns an imaginary monster into a real friend...and of a monster who learns that he's more than a menace under a bed.
