The Slipper Monster
The Slipper Monster lives in your home and wants to be your friend. He’s very shy -- too shy to introduce himself to you. So sometimes he does things to help you out because he’s hoping you will notice and say hello. He likes to do little things like bringing you your slippers or folding your socks or keeping track of your spare change for you. He means well, but the thing about the Slipper Monster is that he’s very small, so these little tasks are Herculean efforts for him. Going up the stairs to find your slippers is like scaling Mount Everest. It’s going to take him a few days to get there and back! And he can only carry one slipper at a time! If you’ve ever thought you lost a sock or slipper or pen, it probably isn’t lost at all. It’s just in transit, courtesy of your resident Slipper Monster.
