Synopsis

Want to meet the Bogeyman? He wants to meet you. And he's right inside this book, just itching to clear his name. See, all that nonsense everybody says about him just isn't true. Oh, don't worry, he won't bite. At least we don't think so. Anyway, you can always shut the book. Still, we think he'll make you want to read every last word.
