Sad Monsters: Growling on the Outside, Crying on the Inside - Frank Lesser, Willie Real This won't be much of a review, because this was such a short book that I don't feel like going into details without spoiling it. Anyways- I won this from FirstReads and was pretty excited to start reading it.Sad Monsters: Growling on the Outside, Crying on the Inside was a delightfully entertaining book-- but not much else. It had tons of cheap laughs, but it kept me smiling throughout the book. A couple of lines made me snort, but that's it. It was mediocre overall, but not bad.
