The Monster That Are My Socks



A young boy, who is about to be grounded for going through so many socks, discovers that a monster has been eating them.

Max is a young boy who is constantly getting in trouble for his socks disappearing. He doesn’t know where they go, but he does know that if he doesn’t do something quickly his mom will ground him for summer. Max soon discovers that a little green monster is sneaking into his room at night and eating his sweaty socks. His mother, of course, doesn't believe him, so Max calls on his best friend to come for a sleepover to catch the monster.
They devise a trap and capture the monster only to learn that the creature can speak. It hasn’t meant to cause any harm, it's just trying to feed its family. The monster shows them his home and his three little children and begs the boys not to turn them over to the adults. Adults, he says, want to destroy monsters. 

The boys are left in a pickle. Allow the monsters to be and get grounded, or turn the monsters in knowing what will happen to them? Neither idea seems good, so they come up with a new plan!






Gross and disgusting. Just the way kids like their monster stories.
Did you think socks got lost in the laundry? You have been misinformed.
There are families of monsters that find smelly sweaty socks a delicasy.
And for dessert they love homework with lots of red ink!

As disgusting as their diet may be, the monsters themselves are cute, almost even in a puppy doggish fashion.
A fun and fanciful first book in a line of monster stories.
