In this exciting second installment of the two-color illustrated chapter book series Monster and Boy, the best friends are back in action, and this time they are headed where no monster has ever dared venture before: to school.

Ever since Monster (who sleeps under the bed) and Boy (who sleeps in the bed) met and became best friends, they've been spending their days playing together. But some days, Boy leaves and Monster is alone. Wanting to learn more about where his friend goes, Monster makes a plan to go with Boy to . . . school! There, Monster meets Boy's teacher and classmates, learns about cubbies and the sharing circle, and even helps solve a mystery when a pet hedgehog goes missing. Told with a warm, cozy voice, the story is brought to life with adorable two-color illustrations. Filled with adventure and humor, this chapter book is perfect for sharing with kids just aging out of picture books and for newly independent readers.
