Monster lived in the park.
At night, he slept alone under a bush.
During the day, he tried to get other creatures to play with him.
The birds would fly away, scared of his matted coat.
The cats would puff their tails and run at the sight of his dirty nails.
The dogs would growl and bark at his yellow teeth.
He worried he would never find a friend.
One day, a little girl sees past the ugly exterior, gives him a chance, and reveals his true beauty.
