About book: 2003 Caldecott Honor recipient Peter McCarty didn't exactly win me over as a fan with this 2009 boy-creates-monster-learns-lesson storybook. I can certainly see McCarty's art as being worthy of an award in the right story, but this volume just didn't click for me. Three stars for the art alone. The story was "meh".Recommended for creative, artistic, troublesome, lonely imaginations. Otherwise, not much remarkable in here for the "normal", non-issue-ridden child. Monsters and a magic pen bring to life Peter McCarty's "Jeremy Draws a Monster". the book begins with an illustration of Jeremy looking out his window from the third floor. He's looking at children playing while holding a pen and surrounded by a table, more pens and drawings. The fantasy begins when Jeremy decides to use his magic pen. However, the results are disastrous. It turns into a good vs evil while still playing within the rules of the magic pen. I enjoyed the subtle message that monsters control us as much as we let them. At the end, Jeremy has enough, sends the monster on his way and decides to leave his third floor room.
