IT’S HERE! Making friends in Marvin’s Monster Diary 3: Trouble with Friends

“Okay, Marvin, slow down and smell the s’mores next time.” I’ve learned that whenever I stop and think, things go so much better—so that’s what I did.

Marvin helped Lyssa tame her emotional looper coaster in Marvin’s Monster Diary 2: ADHD Emotion Explosion. Now he must help Joey, a brash and loud-mouthed lake monster, make summer camp friends—or else Marvin may lose his own friends in the process.
