Richard hears something in his room before bedtime. Is it a monster? He doesn't wait to find out and sets off running through the streets, over the hills, through the forest, and into the fields until he finds himself in a magical jungle. With the help of his stuffed lion Lionheart, Richard finds the courage he needs to face his fears.

After hearing a scary sound in his room, young Richard thinks there is a monster in there, trying to get him. With a little help from LIONHEART, his brave lion toy, Richard learns to overcome his fears. With some imagination, a lot of courage, and some help from Lionheart, Richard realizes his braver than he thought he was. Soon he realizes he never has to worry about being scared of his room again. 

Beautifully illustrated, this is a wonderful book for young kids. Not only will they realize they're not the only ones who are scared of their rooms at night, they too can learn from Richard and Lionheart, how to overcome their fears. This is a wonderful book who's illustrations alone make this a book worth having. 

We loved this book, and would highly recommend picking it up! 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
