About the Book

Winnie wants a monster! Some monsters smell like pirate feet and some might read your diary, but they are so darn cute! All Winnie’s friends have one. But how much do Oogly-Wumps eat? Don’t they ever sleep? Can monsters get lonely?

I Want a Monster! is a humorous, energetic celebration of the responsibility and joy of owning your dream pet, perfect for fans of Peter Brown’s Children Make Terrible Pets or anyone who’s ever longed for or loved a pet of any kind.

Includes a “Would You Like to Adopt a Monster?” activity at the back of the book.

Critical Praise

“Elise Gravel’s kooky cartoons are full of her trademark irony and wit. [She] includes just the right dose of gross, with requisite scenes of nose picking and toilet humor. I Want a Monster! is more fun than a barrel of baby Oogly-Wumps.” —Quill & Quire
