‘Elliot, a monster with a great big soft heart, is desperate to fit in with the other more mischievous monsters. Elliot realises that belonging to a group needs to feel right and he learns a valuable life lesson about respect.

The engaging illustrations in this book are bright and colourful with diverse characters.’
