Why See A Monster Calls?
A Monster Calls
Thirteen-year-old Connor and his mum have been just fine since Connor's father moved to America, but now his mum is ill and isn't getting any better. Throw in some over-bearing Grandparents and some bullish school kids and Connor feels all alone - until he meets the monster of course.
At exactly seven minutes past midnight. Connor is awoken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. The Monster has come to tell Connor tales of the walks he's taken before but at the end of his stories Connor must tell the Monster a tale of his own and face his deepest fears.
