A little girl and her colossal friend teach a monster-size lesson about prejudging others in a charming new offering from Chris Van Dusen.
Hattie McFadden is a born explorer. Every morning she grabs her life jacket and paddles out in her canoe to discover something new on the lake, singing a little song on her way. When her singing draws up from the depths a huge mysterious beast, everyone in town is terrified â except Hattie, who looks into the creatureâs friendly, curious eyes and knows that this is no monster. So Hattie sneaks out at night to see the giant â whom she names Hudson â and the two become friends. But how can she make the frightened, hostile townspeople see that Hudson isnât scary or dangerous at all? Chris Van Dusen brings his colorful, perspective-bending artwork to this satisfying new story about acceptance, friendship, and sticking up for those who are different.
