From the creator of Persepolis - the fabulous graphic memoir of growing up in revolutionary Iran, comes this lovely picture book about a young girl whose attempt to frighten away nighttime monsters leads to some unexpected consequences. When Marie cuts the moon out of the sky, in order to keep it in her room, the resultant darkness emboldens the rats, and causes immense chaos for the cats. Luckily, the Cat King knows how everyone's needs can be met...

I enjoyed Monsters Are Afraid of the Moon, with its brightly-colored illustrations, and its lovely pro-cat narrative, and think that it will provide some bedtime comfort to young children who are afraid of monsters. I can't say that it is a particularly brilliant book, but I am an admirer of Satrapi's, and thought it a worthy first foray into this genre. ( )
