When Love Monster comes home from vacation, he discovers a box of chocolates on his doorstep. He knows he should share it with his friends, but what if there’s none left for him after everyone has a piece? What if they take his favorite-the double chocolate strawberry swirl? And even worse-what if the only piece left is the coffee-flavored one? Ick! In the end, Love Monster learns that sharing with friends is the sweetest treat of all.
A heart-warming story about a monster’s decision to share or not share his chocolates. It’s a little slow at first, but the ending comes with an unexpected twist that makes you quite like the Love Monster and his thoughtful friends.
