A teen encounters a monster that comes calling in the night at exactly 12:07 am but he is not afraid of the giant, dark monster. He is more afraid of the nightmare he has been having. The Monster comes to tell Conor 3 stories and then to hear Conor’s story of the truth. The truth of his nightmare and what it means. As the monster explains stories are wild things. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd— whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself— Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.
