Introducing a lovable monster with a hairy problem

Stewart is a monster. He has wild, crazy, messy hair that's perfect for scaring, collecting spiders, and hiding after-school treats. But when Stewart's hair grows so long that things start getting lost in it, his parents decide it's time to intervene. Stewart disagrees. His hair is awesome! But when Stewart's hair keeps him from doing his very favorite thing, he realizes it might be time to reconsider.

With slyly funny text and uproarious illustrations, this humorous account of a much-feared experience is a must-have for every monster--and every child, too.
