Louis and his family have just moved into their new house, full of big empty rooms and dusty corners to play in.  But on Louis’ first night, he hears a strange noise coming from under his bed, and is shocked to find a monster!  Fortunately, this monster isn’t scary, and when Louis takes him to the park the next day, he helps Louis make friends with the other kids in his new neighborhood.  Featuring an adorable family of foxes and one very large, very green one-eyed monster, this is a great story about new places and learning to make friends.
