From the prolific and beloved author and illustrator Elise Gravel comes this funny and cute board book for the littlest readers.

In this sweet little book, a monster tries to scare a young child. But the child insists the monster is not scary but actually quite huggable.

“Gravel captures humor and heart in a simple dialogue between the goofy aquamarine monster and apathetic child. The contrasting pairing provides a classic setup, and a heartwarming resolution brings satisfaction to the hilarious exchange.”
– Booklist
“This charming, unique and witty board book is perfect for little hands and for adults to tuck away in a diaper bag for an extra giggle on the go.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Profoundly effective in its economy of storytelling in the way the best kids books are...Gravel understands what can make childhood stories like Where the Wild Things Are and The Runaway Bunny eternal...I Am Scary is immensely charming.”

– Readers by Night blog
“Beguiling...This book feels like a comedy skit lovingly performed for an intimate audience.”
