Here Be Monsters!

The book behind The Boxtrolls. Get in the queue to read it. Fiendish plans for world domination? Bring it on. Not since Wallace and Gromit has there been an animation like it: dark, funny and full of invention. (Not to mention cheese.) Now here’s the original book: a bizarre romp which reads like Roald Dahl gone underground. Exactly what we hoped for. A brilliant inventor. A grubby-kneed orphan. A timid cabbagehead. Some very excitable boxtrolls. Only they can stop the evil Snatcher who has moved into Cheese Hall. Will the rats be able to mop up the stains?
