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 anyone who's ever longed for or loved a pet of any kind. This book includes a "Would You Like to Adopt a Monster?" activity at the back of the book.
"[Winnie] researches all the things she needs to do to take care of her monster, including walking, feeding, and even picking up 'monster poo!'...Winnie soon learns that adorable monsters take a lot of work to train, and in a fantastic spread of Winnie never getting any sleep due to her monster never sleeping, the work's cuteness quotient begins to wear thin. Gravel's digital artwork and use of Photoshop and Cintiq graphic tablet create entertaining and engaging characters." -- Melissa Smith, School Library Journal
