Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Karrit – in the place where I live it means, “Teller of Truth,” and “Loyal Friend.” Sort of. There’s no exact translation, just like there’s no exact translation in English for many Spanish, Yiddish and Russian words. In my language, a loyal friend is someone who almost always tells the truth to his friends, even if it hurts their feelings, that way they know that that they can trust him. But a loyal friend is more than that. A loyal friend is someone who helps his friends, even if they don’t know that they need help. I help my friends all the time, sometimes they don’t know they need my help.

If you could make one wish, what would it be?
It would be that people don’t themselves get scared about things that don’t matter much. I think it’s good to be scared if a car is coming down the street and is going to hit you, or you’re going out to swim, but the ocean wants to pull you into the deep part, but people let themselves get scared all of the time about things that could be fixed if they would just talk things through.
Title: The Monster on Top of the Bed & My Monster on Top of the Bed
Author: Alan H. Jordan
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Suzy, who used to jump up and down on her bed having just a great time. This scared a young critter named Karrit who lived under Suzy’s bed and he wanted her to be his friend. Still, Suzy ate strange things like cakes made out of pans (pancakes) and the toes of toemays (tomatoes) and—he couldn’t believe it—he heard her talk about eating something truly horrendous.
One day Karrit heard Suzy tell her mother that she was lonely and needed a friend. Because of that Karrit decided to visit Suzy. At first Suzy was afraid of Karrit, who had red, scaly legs, and a blue nose. But Suzy noticed that Karrit seemed scared of her too. So, Suzy treated Karrit the way that she would want to be treated if she had gone to his house.
As they grew to know each other, Suzy figured out why Karrit was afraid of her, and she was sorry to have scared him. She showed him a hotdog (she didn’t eat dogs that were hot) a tomato (she didn’t eat the toes of matoes) and a carrot (she definitely didn’t eat Karrits).
Suzy made Karrit feel that she liked him, and that she wanted him to be happy. Because of that, they kept getting to know each other better until one day they both realized that they didn’t have to be afraid of each other, and that it was a mistake for each of them to think of the other as a “monster.” Suzy and Karrit became best friends, and neither was afraid of monsters again.

His children’s book The Monster on Top of the Bed was written to pass on his strongest beliefs and values to a grandchild, just in case he should pass away before my daughter got pregnant and had a child.
