Esme’s never met a monster she didn’t like—big, small, furry, or slimy. She is an amazing monstersitter and has a knack for coming up with the perfect activity to fix a little monster’s problem. She’s not afraid to try new things, and while she sometimes gets carried away, she doesn’t give up until she succeeds!
