What kid doesn't suspect that there are monsters lurking under the bed, behind the shower curtain, in the basement, and even outside by the garbage cans? Mercer Mayer brilliantly and hilariously captures this classic childhood fear--and conquers it! Kids will cheer as the young hero of the story takes matters into his own hands by learning karate. Soon he has the monsters running scared!

There's a Nightmare in My Closet and its two terrific sequels are cherished favorites that have amused millions of readers, and continue selling year after year. Now Mercer Mayer has created a fresh new story and fabulous illustrations that will thrill and empower kids, a story that taps into a universal experience but with a super satisfying, karate twist!
