My Monster Burrufu is a sweet story about seven year old Olivia and her new best friend, Burrufu, who happens to be a monster. Olivia meets Burrufu on her first night in her new home, but she isn't frightened by him, because her father has told her that a monster in the house is good luck. Burrufu is a loner who prefers to keep away from people, but Olivia slowly wins him over, and for the first time in a very long time, Burrufu finds himself enjoying human company. Then Olivia's father discovers him, and in a frightened panic, overreacts, calling in local law enforcement and the military. Olivia's dad is only able to set things right when he learns to see past his first impression and get to know Burrufu for more than just his frightening appearance.

Author Alberto Corral has penned a sweet story for younger children about the importance of getting to know people without judging them.
