In a follow-up to Steve Light's highly praised Have You Seen My Dragon?, the county fair is filled with shapes—and somewhere among them a monster is waiting to be found.

A little girl gallivants through a county fair, searching for her furry friend. Readers will surely spot the friendly monster as well as twenty shapes, identified here by their proper names—trapezoids, ellipses, kites, and more—hidden among iconic fair attractions from the fun house to the Ferris wheel. Maybe the monster is judging the pies? Or perhaps he's at the monster-truck rally? Youngsters will be so mesmerized by Steve Light's masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with vivid splashes of color, they won't even realize they've learned how to spot a nonagon while looking for a monster.
Steve Light is the author-illustrator of The Christmas Giant, Zephyr Takes Flight, and Have You Seen My Dragon? He lives with his wife and cat in Manhattan, where the closest fair is in Queens.
