Synopsis

Even Monsters Need Haircuts by Matthew McElligott

Just before midnight, on the night of a full moon, a young barber stays out past his bedtime to go to work. Although his customers are mostly regulars, they are anything but normal - after all, even monsters need haircuts. Business is steady all night, and this barber is prepared for anything with his scissors, rotting tonic, horn polish, and stink wax. It's a tough job but someone's got to help these creatures maintain their ghoulish good looks. A hilarious story about a boy who follows in his father's footsteps ...in his own monstrously unique way.
