Where the Mild Things Are

A Very Meek Parody

Illustrated by Bonnie Leick

About The Book

Mog is an uncharacteristically mild monster. He’s not scary, he likes kittens, and he’s quite...boring. When his parents get angry with him for being so mild, his bed transforms into an AMC Gremlin, and Mog takes off in search of adventure. He arrives in Dullsville, where he meets the dullest people imaginable—Vice President Gore, Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, and Jay Leno among them. Eventually he is consumed by boredom, and Mog heads back to his monster parents, never to be mild again! Timed to publish just weeks before the muchanticipated Where the Wild Things Are movie, this parody of a childhood classic is sure to be a hit with both fans and detractors of the original.
