The Monsters’ Monster by Patrick McDonnell

Three little creatures spend all their time brawling and trying to out-monster each other, until they decide to work together to make the biggest, baddest monster ever.

  
But just as parents cannot dictate who or what their children grow up to be, to the three rascals’ exasperation, their “monster monster” turns out to be a gentle giant who is not only utterly disinterested in being a proper monster, but also endearingly kind and adorably polite.

  
While clearly inspired by Mary Shelley’s #Frankenstein, Patrick McDonnell’s creation is not so much a cautionary tale about playing God, but a heartwarming lesson in appreciating the gift of life by being true to yourself and not squandering a single second on meaningless pursuits.
