One night, when Ethan checks under the bed for his monster, he finds a note instead:
"Gone fishing. Back in a week. – Gabe”
What will Ethan do? He needs a monster under his bed. How is he supposed to get to sleep if his monster is gone? Substitute monsters appear, but none are just right. Herbert's teeth aren't sharp enough, Mack's slobbering induces giggles, Cynthia's tail isn't scary at all, and Ralph has nail polish on his claws! This will never work! How will Ethan ever get to sleep without his monster?
I Need My Monster is a monster-under-the-bed story for all monster-loving kids.
The sequel will be published in Fall 2016 in the US: I Need My Monster Too.
