Like every kid in town, twelve-year-old Gabby has a pet monster. However, Gabby refuses to keep her monster, Dwight, in the closet. When she takes her pet to school, the drama teacher takes a liking to the beastly pet. He wants the monster to play Scrooge in the annual Christmas production. If Dwight doesn't meet his expectations, both Gabby and her pet will be given the hook.

About the Author:

Robert Marsh grew up in Omaha, but longed to live somewhere else. He pretended he didn’t live in Omaha by reading lots and lots of comics and books. He went to the library every week and checked out twenty books at a time. Since he didn’t have time to read all those books before they were due, he would read the first chapter of each book then make up the rest of the story in his head. Robert now makes up stories for a living. He doesn’t live in Omaha. He lives somewhere else. Dreams do come true.

Tom Percival was born and raised in the wilds of Shropshire, England, a place of such remarkable natural beauty that Tom decided to sit in his room every day, drawing pictures and writing stories. But that was all a long time ago, and much has changed since then. Now, Tom lives in Bristol, England, where he sits in his room all day, drawing pictures and writing stories while his patient girlfriend, Liz, and their baby son, Ethan, keep him company.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4–Gabby Gibbons wants to take her people-hungry pet monster out of his home, the closet, and have him star in the school play, The Christmas Carol. Obstacles, such as Gabby's mom and the fact that Dwight can't utter much more than Roaarr!, get in the way, but the pair persevere. The story has a message, delivered not too subtly, that there is a space for everyone in our country no matter how they look: Gabby is African American while Dwight is Monster-American. The illustrations are roughly drawn and sometimes look hastily put together, but Dwight is big and lovable, and children will become attached to him.–Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
