Description
Meet Jumpy Jack, a very nervous snail who's afraid of monsters, and Googily, who is blue with hairy eyebrows and pointy teeth and is a—well—who is a very good friend, indeed. Wherever they go, Jack asks Googily to kindly check high and low just to make sure there are no scary monsters about. But monsters come in many shapes and sizes; some are even blue with hairy eyebrows and pointy teeth. This book for youngsters up to 6 by Printz Award and Carnegie Medal winner Meg Rosoff is delightfully illustrated with finely drawn watercolor cartoons.

"The text, which consists entirely of dialogue, employs a formal elevated tone that gently chides Jumpy Jack's childish fears, adding an element of dry humor. The illustrations are filled with whimsical details, from Googily's dapper wardrobe to the characters' matching dolls. The calm, slightly muted palette, along with the friendly expressiveness of the protagonists' faces, sends the subtle message that there is truly nothing here to fear."—School Library Journal (starred review)
