This book was fantastic and right up my alley for #Scarathlon

Monsters stalk the Turner family and they have suffered for it over the generations by ignoring them. But what happens when the youngest child, Noah, invites the monsters in?

I borrowed this #graphicnovel in #libby . The cover is dark upon opening it and then lights up with various eyes every couple of seconds...so cool! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jonathan finds himself alone in a swamp at night & needs a place to stay 4 the night to escape the monsters. He comes across a place with a little help, but it'll cost him something to stay. Does he have the pmt or will he sleep w/ the monsters??
