Meet Monster. Meet Judy. Two humans who don't like each other much, but together must fight dragons, fire-breathing felines, trolls, Inuit walrus dogs, and a crazy cat lady - for the future of the universe.

Monster runs a pest control agency. He's overworked and has domestic troubles - like having the girlfriend from hell.

Judy works the night shift at the local Food Plus Mart. Not the most glamorous life, but Judy is happy. No one bothers her and if she has to spell things out for the night-manager every now and again, so be it.

But when Judy finds a Yeti in the freezer aisle eating all the<_st13a_street _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_address _w3a_st="on">Rocky Road, her life collides with Monster's in a rather alarming fashion. Because Monster doesn't catch raccoons; he catches the things that go bump in the night. Things like ogres, trolls, and dragons.

Oh, and his girlfriend from Hell? She actuallyisfrom Hell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC I have never been into books because I hate paying for a $20 book when I could buy something else for the same price. But in Feb of this year I was walking last Coles and saw the Under $10 books and grabbed like 10 books that were $2, and this was one of them. I was to busy to start them til last month. This was the first one I picked up. Within the first few pages I was hooked. I love this book. Its so easy to read and so fun. I love Monsters attitude, and Chester is the bomb. I love this book so much I cant wait to pick up more of Martinez books even for full price cause they are worth it. (Im kinda frugal)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! My husband picked up the first A. Lee Martinez book, "Gil's All Fright Diner," a few years ago and we've been hooked on his books ever since. Loved Monster from the very first page. A. Lee Martinez has a great imagination and it certainly shows in his writing. Can't wait to read more!
