This modern picture book teaches us to never underestimate the power of a pint-sized little girl to size-up store clerks, see through the shortcomings of parents and well, rid the video store of MONSTERS! Meet Stella, a character whose tolerance for the intolerable (in this story that means a monster who eats her mother) is very low. Pushed to her limit, this cute little girl explodes into Frankenstella, a kid super-hero of sorts, and gets that nasty monster to burp up her mother and stop lurking in the dark corner of the video store. This hilarious story is powered by high fidelity, digitally inspired art and gets its "I eat monsters for breakfast" attitude from today's empowered kids.
