Little Monstrie, a monster who doesn’t fit the “norms”, wishes his name were something more empowering like Jean-Clawed. His mother makes him wear tusk-mittens, she does not let him watch TV in the evenings, or allow him to eat sweets. His fellow students at school think of him as a bit of an oddball. Throughout the chapters that involve a kidnapping, some bullying, and lessons on growling (which is hard to do when you can’t roll your Rs) and scaring, Monstrie experiences moments of wonderful self-discovery. The unconditional love from his parents becomes apparent and readers also get to witness how an act of kindness can turn around the actions of a bully. The ultimate lesson comes from his scare class teacher who tells him that in life it is paramount to always be yourself.
