Synopsis

These are the daily setbacks that turn us all into monsters, and yet make us all human. Featuring gloriously gloomy illustrations, plus checklists for you to tick-off all those disappointed monsters you encounter in your own reality, this is the perfect gift to give your most morose friends and relatives. Each letter introduces a daily setback familiar to us all, experienced by a crestfallen creature from the imagination of author and illustrator Eli Bowes. They range from Alarm (a disappointed monster who wakes at 6:15 am on a Saturday, having neglected to switch off his workday alarm) to Zip (a disappointed monster whose expensive hoodie has suffered a fastening malfunction) via an array of fantastically illustrated beings sinking into everyday ennui due to flat-pack furniture, a bad first date, a hair-choked drain, or an empty toilet paper roll. So, next time you're furiously scrubbing jam off the carpet before your parents arrive, remember that somewhere, someone (or something) shares your pain.
