A Monster Calls

I’m friendlier than I look ...
A 12-year-old boy, dealing with his mother’s illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother, and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides him on a journey of courage, faith, and truth.
