"This story, told in rhyme, is about a young boy and a monster who get to spend the day together, following an exchange of letters.

A monster wrote me a letter today. He said he was coming to my house to play. But what if he's scary and won't go away. What if the monster decides to stay...?" (Source: Trove)
