From the Publisher:
Hiding under Jo-Jo's bed is a tiny monster with a big appetite for darkness who gobbles up the night and grows bigger with every bite until there is no darkness left anywhere, from the earth to the stars. 15,000 first printing.Best-selling Taiwanese illustrator Jimmy Liao teams up with renowned British author Joyce Dunbar to present a fantastical, heartwarming tale.

Why can’t Jo-Jo go to sleep? He doesn''t like the darkness under the bed — a monster might be hiding there. And one is! It's a tiny speck of a monster with a huge appetite for darkness, gobbling it up under the bed, in every nook and cranny, and in the wide world outside, growing bigger with every bite. Soon there is no darkness left anywhere, from the earth to the stars. All the world is light, but the monster still has an empty feeling inside. Only a sleepless boy will help him be fulfilled at last.
Frightened of the dark under his bed, a little boy named Jo-Jo doesn't realize there's a very special monster living there. The monster is very, very tiny, and loves nothing more than eating darkness. Soon, he munches up all the darkness in Jo-Jo's room and beyond, growing bigger and bigger all the time. But soon the monster gets very lonely, and Jo-Jo gets to help him out. With charming, detailed digital illustrations.


"The trick for authors has been to find new wrinkles to explore in the well-worn material. In THE MONSTER WHO ATE THE DARKNESS, Joyce Dunbar does just that by recasting a hidden monster of her story as a kind of childlike magical helper." - Leonard S. Marcus 11/9/2008
