Kate has a problem. She’s terrified of her aunt’s big bulldog. Kate’s aunt calls the dog Cookie…Kate calls it a monster! One day, after fleeing the apartment to escape Cookie, Kate takes the strangest elevator ride ever—complete with a mysterious package and floor after floor of real-life monsters! On the top floor, all the monsters exit the elevator for an unexpected treat. But they’re missing one special ingredient… guess who has it? Kate has just the thing to top off the monster’s favorite snack. It takes all of her courage, but she manages to share with the monsters, and finds that they aren’t so scary after all! Kate makes some new friends, and she discovers the perfect way to tame her own personal beast. This warmly written, beautifully illustrated book is certain to be a favorite among all children (and adults) who have been afraid at one time or another. (Ages 2-5)
