A hilarious and endearing debut picture book about a dog whose daily routine is disrupted when he encounters a monstrous surprise in the living room.

Every morning, Bongo walks downstairs to get his food, passing his dried-up potted plant, his old stained chair, and his stinky stained carpet. Until one morning, something is different. Something monstrous is in his way! Bongo is beside himself with worry. Will it take his walks? What if it eats his food? Or even worse, what if it takes his family?! Perfect for fans of Something’s Wrong! and Can I Be Your Dog?, this charmingly funny new-baby story, told from the perspective of a dog, explores the fears and joys that come with change.
