Overview

When Ethan looks under the bed for his monster, he finds this note instead: So long, kid. Gotta go. Someone needs me more than you do. Gabe How will Ethan ever get to sleep without his monster s familiar, comforting snorts? And who could need Gabe more than Ethan does? Ah! Gabe must have gone to Ethan s little sister s room! She has been climbing out of bed every night to play, and obviously needs a monster to help her get to sleep -- but not HIS monster! Ethan tries to help his sister find her own perfect monster, but she thinks these freaky-funny monsters are perfect playmates! This will never work! Just when it seems that Ethan will lose his monster forever, an uninvited, tutu-toting little monster full of frightening fun appears. Could she be the best monster-match for Ethan s sister, and will Ethan get Gabe back for good? Following in the spooky-silly tradition of I Need My Monster, here s another irresistible monster-under-the-bed story with the perfect balance of giggles and shivers. Crawl under your covers with Hey, That's MY Monster!, and you'll soon be sleeping soundly.
