The Monkey Mountain Monster finds Lindsey a reluctant day-camper, partly because most of the kids come from another school in her town of Hope Springs, but mostly because of mouthy Mona, who's a put-down artist extraordinaire and who's never without her gaggle of admiring girlfriends. Lindsey wants no part of it, but Mona has lured Lindsey's best friend, Caitlin, into her crowd of disciplesA3which leaves Lindsey out in the cold. To complicate matters, there's a mysterious monster, known as the Ooly Gooly, roaming through Hope Springs. On a dare Lindsey agrees that she will sleep out in her backyard one nightA3but when she finds out that Caitlin won't join her, she realizes she really is all on her own. An unexpected volunteer agrees to join Lindsey, and when the monster shows up the kids can't contain themselves. Chaos and panic set in with lively results.
"A cast of dynamic, memorable characters, plenty of humor (a Staunton trademark) and well-paced plots with believable school-age conflicts and satisfying endings. . . . Highly recommended."
"Staunton's strength is that he uses humor to engage the reader while exploring problems that loom large on the pre-teen radar."
