A Monster Calls is a deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor, featuring stunning artwork by Jim Kay. Thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find an unexpected visitor - a monster, to be exact - outside his bedroom window. It isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting-- he’s been watching and waiting for the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth!
