Monster Trouble is a charming story from Lane Fredrickson with spunky pictures by Michael Roberston. Nothing frightens Winifred Schnitzel, but she does need her sleep! The neighborhood monsters sneak into her room every night and create quite a scene, they growl and belch and won’t let Winifred be. She tries everything she can think of to get rid of these pesky beasts but her traps just can’t contain them. Luckily Winifred learns the ultimate trick and finds out what monsters hate – KISSES! Readers young and old will delight in the endearing verse and colorful images which pair together perfectly to tell this super sweet monster tale.
