How to Make Friends and Monsters
Howard Boward is a 12-year-old who knows a lot about science–but practically nothing about making friends. And since he can’t seem to make them the normal way, he decides to do something drastic: make one in his laboratory. With a little DNA, a little wonder putty, and a whole lot of luck, he succeeds in his quest to build a best buddy. There’s just one problem… it’s a monster. Howard soon learns that having a large, hairy, goo-filled pal can turn your life upside down–especially when the monster turns out to be a huge hit with his classmates. Will the lure of popularity destroy their friendship?
