The Monsters’ Monster
Once upon a time, there were three little rascals who thought they were the BIGGEST, BADDEST monsters around. But when they decide to build a huge monster of their own, he isn’t exactly what the creatures were expecting. He’s happy. He giggles. He’s just grateful to be alive. And he has a lesson for his grouchy creators that only takes two little words – Dank You.
