From Worldcat:

Ever since he nearly drowned in the ocean three years earlier, 10-year-old Jack Peter Keenan has been deathly afraid to venture outdoors. Refusing to leave his home in a small coastal town in Maine, Jack Peter spends his time drawing monsters. When those drawings take on a life of their own, no one is safe from the terror they inspire.

About the suggested projects:

Our project suggestion for this book is right there in the title: draw a monster! There's lots of great monster sketches and doodles out there to inspire you - if you don't want to tackle a whole sheet of paper with your drawing, try working on a smaller, disposable canvas like an index card or a post-it note a la Don Kenn (see link above).
