What's Gabe and Goon About

Publisher Summary

Monsters are real! But, so are little boys.

Gabe longs to encounter a real, live monster. And tonight’s his lucky night because hiding in Gabe’s closet is real-live monster and easily spooked, Goon, wishes to keep away from the outside world— especially those scary little beings called children. When the two meet, Goon can’t scare Gabe no matter how hard he tries. But an unsuccessful monster makes for a great friend when the boy is actually scared.

Best-selling author/illustrator Iza Trapani uses humorous rhyme to share a spirited story of unexpected friendship.

Who Wrote Gabe and Goon

author & illustrator
Iza Trapani

I was born in Poland, and immigrated to the U.S. when I was seven. I learned English with the help of a Mother Goose collection which my relatives had given me. Before I understood the words, I was fascinated with the pictures: a woman with a gaggle of kids living in a shoe, a little man jumping over a candlestick, blackbirds flying out of a pie! What did it all mean? Eventually, I learned English, and read many more books, but the nursery rhymes continued to fascinate me. Little did I know then what a big part they would play in my life.Years later, I attained my lifelong dream of making books for children, and most of my titles are extensions of Mother Goose rhymes. When I'm not writing and illustrating picture books, I enjoy spending time outdoors- hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, and I was once a rock climbing guide. Some fun facts: I was a stunt double for an actress in two rock climbing episodes of the soap opera, One Life To Live. I can scale cliffs, but a spider will scare the living daylights out of me! One of my dreams has been to learn to yodel, and I have - well, just a little. I don't think you'd really want to hear me.
