A humorous look at life's problems through the unique perspective of different monsters. Some are sad with their misunderstood and lonely existence, while some thrive. Many of the stories touch on relationship issues, though the book runs the gamut from politics to racism. It is a quick read, with 40 short stories packed into fewer than 200 pages. For people who liked David Sedaris' "Squirrel Seeks Chimpunk," this book has a similar feel you will likely enjoy.
