Synopsis

The Monster Maintenance Manual by Peter MacInnis

Have you ever wondered why sometimes after you have washed your socks, one of them mysteriously disappears? Or why your shoelaces always seem to get tangled into tricky knots? The answer is, you probably have a monster problem or, more specifically, two monster problems with a gobblesock living behind your washing machine and a shoelace monster nesting under your bed. The Monster Maintenance Manual is a field guide for monster-philes of all ages, focusing on sixty-four curious creatures. This spotters manual explains what they look like, what annoying habits they have and even if they are useful for anything. With big colour profile pictures for each monster and a handy section on how to keep them (or get rid of them), The Monster Maintenance Manual is a must have book for any aspiring monster expert.
