The Other Felix
Named Best of the Best by the Chicago Public Library!
A story of growing up—for kids who have graduated from Where the Wild Things Are but are still fascinated by the world of dreams
Felix has nightmares. Every night when he falls asleep monsters chase him through a wild, lonely land, and when he wakes up he’s back in his bed with mud on his feet and tears in his pajamas. His parents are too busy with work to understand, and the bully at school thinks Felix’s fears are funny.
But one night Felix meets a boy who knows how to fight monsters, a boy who looks just like him and is also named Felix. Debut children’s author Keir Graff crafts a fantastical, psychological novel about dreams, survival, and taming the monster within us all.
