Kate faces a monster, and this monster scares her. She escapes her aunt's dog only to find herself in a more terrifying situation when she enters the elevator to discover a package that needs delivering. At each floor an actual monster gets in, and her comedic body language speaks to her fright. Finally upon arriving at the top floor, she gathers her courage to finish her task. She learns that despite appearances, monsters can actually be quite nice. Kate's expressions sell this story. Her circular glasses give her a perpetual wide-eyed look with which to express her fears, while the silly designs of the creatures belay the need to be afraid. Scaredy Kate takes one unexpected turn after the next, none of which is garnered from the cover. Not only were the monsters a pleasing surprise, but this is also a simple counting book, mounting the "fear" with each addition. After her predicament, Kate returns to her original foe, finally able to face him.
