Archie awoke with a shout in the night.
Only a dream, but what a terrible fright.
Well monsters may roar, may growl or just sigh,
But monsters are strong, monsters don't cry.
Written in delightful rhyming verse, this charming children's story introduces Archie, a brave young monster who is determined to face all the obstacles life has to offer without shedding a single tear. From scary nightmares to falling out of a swing, upset tummies due to too much birthday cake, and even getting stung by a mean old bumble bee, Archie remains steadfast to prove that he is a real monster—and monsters are strong, they don't cry! However, Archie eventually learns that sometimes even little monsters don't always have to be brave, especially when mommy and daddy monster are at hand to make everything all right!
