The ghoulish capers of everyone's favorite monster continue with the third volume of the acclaimed series. Melvin lands his first babysitting job only to discover he has his handsfull, literally -- the "baby" in this case is a giant-sized monster, almost the size of a room. Melvin meets his friend for a friendly game of marbles. An older monster-woman passing by is offended by the scene, as everybody in Monsterville knows that monsters should always fight when they're together. Finally, she is content only after forcing the 2 monsters into a scrap. Melvin also attempts to be the first kid in Monsterville to attend school in over 600 years, but he is thwarted each time by Miss McGargoyle, his would-be teacher. He is threatened with boulders, giant boomerangs, and even long-range missiles, but nothing can stop Melvin from wanting to go to school each day. Melvin Monster illustrate just how timeless the comics of John Stanley are.
