They fed the pigs on the farm and put out fires in the city. In school you might have sat next to a monster, or even have been taught by one. Monsters were everywhere! And ... no one was afraid of them.First published in 1986, "A World Full of Monsters returns to provide bedtime comfort for a new generation.
