Called “a triumphant sally in the long-running war against closet and other domestic monsters” by Kirkus Reviews, Ava the Monster Slayer tells the story of a young girl who rescues her favorite stuffed piggy from the monster-infested basement, all while donning her signature glasses, her brother’s superhero cape, her rain boots, and a sparkly princess crown. Why leave all the fighting and world-saving to the guys? Following in the footsteps of Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Black Widow from The Avengers, Ava the Monster Slayer teaches both girls and boys that females can be strong, be brave, and find their courage when needed.
