Here Come the Monsters

Not all monsters are alike. Some are scary, some are cute, some live to scare you, and some… well, they’re just different. For instance, look at Mister Fang. He sent me this photograph to show you how unscary he is.


No, please don’t let his name scare you. Mister Fang is the sweetest monster you’ll ever meet. While all his friends are out scaring folks, you will find him picking wildflowers to give to the lovely ladies around. Looks like today’s your lucky day. He picked this flower just for you.


Isn’t he a sweetheart! With his toothy grin, protruding belly, and a cute belly button (not to mention his charming manners), he’s definitely the most eligible monster bachelor in town.

And then, there are the naughty Fruity-Mons, a gang of teenage fruit monsters, who are always up to some mischief.


Dragon Fruit, Kiwi & Lemon carry vitamins in the tiny backpacks and sneak them into your food when you’re not looking. Though they may think they’re being super naughty, they are actually helping us stay healthy. So you see, they’re not the bad guys after all.


And here are they, with their little backpacks, ready to dive into your fruit salad bowl. I’ve managed to acquire a few of their most recent photos. Please take a good look at them.
