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!

My Thoughts
This is a cute book that will finally explain where all your missing socks have gone. The story and illustrations are adorable. The monster is friendly and hungry, and just wants to find food and take some back to his three little monsters because they are hungry too.

I can’t wait to read this book to my grandson. I think he will love it!
