Publisher: David Fickling Books

Richard is convinced that there is a monster lurking in his room at bedtime - so, together with his beloved soft toy Lionheart, he runs away from his fears.

As he races through town and countryside with the monster in pursuit, he reaches a magical jungle, where Lionheart transforms into an enormous lion. With a trusty friend by his side to protect him, Richard has so much fun exploring the enchanting world that he stops being afraid - and finds the courage to banish the monster once and for all.

Warm, atmospheric illustrations create a fantastical dream world for Richard's brave adventure. An imaginative picture book that is useful to address the issue of night-time fears with young children.
