Monsters in my Backpack
by Kaitlin Griffin

For as long as stories have been told, monsters have been the bad guys, mischievously lurking under beds and inside closets. But what if you had your own monsters? Don’t you think they would be your friends?

What if, when kids at school were mean, you could pull a monster from your backpack? Well, that monster might sing a beautiful song, and before long you would have friends all around! That’s just how it is for one little boy and his three monsters: Jean, Walter, and Trixie! These monsters of song, magic, and fun inspire confidence, and help him learn how to make new friends.

Monsters in My Backpack is a uniquely refreshing story about bullying, the challenge of being the new kid in school, and one boy’s brilliant imagination.

Kaitlin Griffin is a foremost expert on monsters, seeing as her three children each have a monster or two of their own. Monsters in my Backpack is the second book Kaitlin has written that revolves around her children and their lives, the first being Ghost in the Closet. She’s inspired to share the stories that taught her kids how to be confident, face the world, and find their own truth in imagination.

Kaitlin lives in London, Ontario with her husband, children, and many pets.
