Meet Marisol McDonald who likes "words that begin with the letter "m." She especially likes "being mismatched and marvelous."
Marisol has a gloriously ordinary life filled with exceptionally ordinary things and she loves it all. Well, everything but that one "m" word she does "not like at all" and that word is..........MONSTER!
Turns out Marisol hears things that go bump in the night and she's pretty sure those bumps come from the mosnter who lives and waits under her bed.
Her imagination is overtaken by monster worries. What do they look like? What do they do? What's it like to be a monster?
For every child who meets monsters in the dark shadows of their own room and even for those who only suspect them, this is a concrete pathway colored in self-reliance, reassurance and plenty of nighttime fun.
The story is written in both English and Spanish.
So, come and meet Marisol. You won't have to be afraid of the night bumps again.
