AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mac O'Beasty was a huge Scottish monster who dreamed of travelling the land, playing his bagpipes. Every time he played, all the other monsters danced and danced and danced. How they loved to hear him! Mac sadly wished he could dance to music but he was too big and fat. He had never run, or climbed a tree even. Mac loved eating sugary food and fatty, yukky junk food and it was making him so fat he could hardly move. One day, a little monster called Julie, who was a personal trainer told Mac that she needed to help him to lose some fat or he would die young from eating all the sugary and fatty junk food, she told him his heart would just stop if he kept on eating all the junk! Julie helped Mac to walk, run, exercise, and in six months Mac lost heaps of weight and he just loved the change to his life. He also could dance now. His feet just began to move one day when he was playing his bagpipes...and he danced, and danced, and it felt so good. Mac learned how much more fun he could have by being healthy, so he joined Julie, the personal trainer, and they helped other monsters to be healthy and happy.' (Publication summary)
