Good morning. How are you? With the holidays just around the corner I’m very happy to introduce you to a very special Yuletide Monster. I hope you’ll have fun meeting this one, and I hope that you’ll have an excellent season, and a wonderful New Year. You do know, don’t you, that 344 LOVES YOU

And let’s not forget: A big, jolly shout-out to Peter Batchelder for arranging and performing a killer solo exclusively for this monster, and to Daniel Holter at the Burst Collective for making that happen! Thank you so much!

    Happy Holidaze to you, Stefan…….

    There’s no story for us to tell, you’ve told it all! And a terrific story it is, too.
    May I christen him Little Jack? As in, Horner?

    Poor Curl! Everyone always laughed at his singing. Then suddenly, he realized he was a fantastic trumpeteer! He didn’t even need an instrument. It just came from his soul!
    Happy Holidays,Stefan! I check every day for a message from you and to see how the monsters are doing! I’m giving one of your books to my daughters art teacher for Christmas this year so I will let you know if he does a monster project in one of his classes!

    We are very glad that the monster found his niche. Who needs caroling anyway?
