About the Book

Eight-year-old Emma is playing with her friends when four creepy bats issue a decree from the Big Orange Monster that takes away all the fun. As conversation about the monster takes up the school blackboards and dinner talks, Emma becomes sad and distressed about the future of her town.


Ernie the Eagle, the protector of the people, sees how unhappy Emma is and reminds her that when people come together, they can overcome any obstacle. When Emma chooses to hide in bed anyway, Ernie goes to face the Big Orange Monster—and he ends up being held hostage. Emma realizes that hiding from problems won’t solve anything, so she encourages everyone to work together and rescue Ernie and their town from the monster. Maybe all of the people speaking with one voice can stop the monster’s evil plans.


In this children’s book, when a big orange monster takes over the Land of the Brave and eliminates fun, eight-year-old Emma learns the best way to confront this bully.
