Dear Reader,

Monsters are real... and stuffed animals really do protect you from them at night. It's true!

When I was little, every night before falling asleep I would carefully arrange my stuffed animals around me on either side, facing out — so they could watch for the monsters I wouldn't see coming while I slept.

(I also added up their 'stats' to try and figure out how powerful they would be against any given monster.)

STUFFED is a story I've wanted to tell for a long, long time now. It's about a boy who is not quite ready to grow up — or at least fit in with traditional ideas about growing up. It's about fears real and imagined, unconventional friendships, monsters and stuffed animals, and the power of love over darkness.
