Author Nina Hess has just penned A Practical Guide To Monsters (Mirrorstone), a book that reveals everything you need to know in case you ever come face-to-face with a monster.
But while Hess has no problems writing about monsters today, she was a scaredy cat when it came to dealing with monsters as a kid.
Hess admits: I definitely thought there were monsters under my bed and used to check to make sure things hadnt been moved around under there! Its great to conquer my silly fears and write about monsters as an adult.
And Hess has certainly braved her fears, and has even learned to love hairy, scary creatures.
She says, Ive realized how cool monsters are, with all their powers and abilities. My favorite monster in my book is this guy called The Beholder, whos a floating monster with lots of eyes that each have a special power. Hes really grotesque, but kinda cute too.
A Practical Guide To Monsters hits shelves August 28.
