Big Scary Monster loves to shock his friends. But if he wants to keep them, he will need to change his ways!

Big Scary Monster is one misunderstood beastie. He loves to jump out and surprise his friends, but he’s not mean, really. Yet when his friends start hiding from him, he decides to look for new creatures to frighten ... only to wind up finding out he’s a bit of a scaredy-cat himself! This funny, original story with a mind-bending twist is a wonderful read-aloud sure to engage little monsters everywhere.
