"Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters" is my first kid's book. It's the story (with pictures) of a young monster named Terrabella Smoot. She is on her way to the Monster of the Year celebration when she finds herself lost in the woods and on a quest to be reunited with her family. Along her journey she meets monsters of all kinds, from the peculiar yet helpful Eppie-Gladys Snarf to the bellowing Lord Thonk the Ghastly to the downtrodden unsung monsters.

Does Terrabella find her family? Does she leave Ghastly Castle in one piece? Does she help the unsung monsters? Does she ever have a slimy, refreshing bottle of Smoot's Ick again? Find out, in "Terrabella Smoot and the Unsung Monsters."
