Look, I know you've got a lot of monster books out there to choose from. Not just blue ones either. But sometimes you want a monster story that can give you cool visuals and a fun plot without sacrificing style or message. This little number won't change the face of friendly monster fare as we know it, but when it comes to amusing both adults and kids alike it certainly has the edge. Fun. Cute. Hard to resist.

Key West's 2008 Hemingway Days celebration is to begin not with a bang, but with a bump — when writer and artist Edward Hemingway introduces his engaging children's picture book, "Bump in the Night."
The youngest grandson of American literary legend Ernest Hemingway, Edward Hemingway is to debut and sign the book during a 5:30-7 p.m. reception Tuesday, July 15, at Key West's landmark Blue Heaven restaurant and bar, 729 Thomas St. The location is particularly meaningful because it's the site of a onetime boxing ring where Ernest Hemingway refereed neighborhood matches when he lived in the island city in the 1930s.
"I'm really excited to be coming to Key West to showcase the book, and it seems very appropriate," said Edward Hemingway, son of Ernest's youngest son Gregory. "My father spent a great deal of his childhood in the Keys and so did I — so what better place for me to launch my first children's book?"

"We have three wonderful judges: Steve Klein, editor of the Huron River Press; Joe Borri, a (Detroit) artist and writer; and Edward Hemingway, Ernest's grandson, who is himself a children's book illustrator. "This is a great opportunity for high school artists to have their work looked at by professionals," concludes Agnew, "get some exposure locally (we're picking five finalists and plan to use the images for display); and (have) a great thing to have in a portfolio if they're going to art school."

Hemingway, Edward BUMP IN THE NIGHT
May 15, 2008 - Sporting an Elvis 'do and clutching his teddy bear, young Billy confronts his fears and finds that a bump in the night doesn't have to be scary. At first glance, though, the blue monster that appears from his closet does have him a bit worried. But

BUMP IN THE NIGHT by Edward Hemingway, illustrated by Edward Hemingway, Putnam, 06/08
Billy's dreams of the fun he'll have with his teddy and dog the next day are interrupted by a bump in the night. He is a little scared; worrying about ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties, but the last monster that appears in his room isn't scary at all. He's a yo-yo using, horseback-riding, ghoulie-scaring, beastie-ropin' monster who's perfect to take on adventures (and he's sensitive - he gives Billy his teddy back when Billy cries). ($15.99 US; $19.00 CAN; 8½ x 9½; 32 pages; Ages 3-5)
* Literary pedigree: Eddie is Ernest Hemingway's grandson.
