A deluxe hardcover edition of Patrick Ness' masterpiece feature the entire illustrated novel as well as more than one hundred pages of extraordinary film-inspired content.

The monster in Conor's backyard is not hte one he's been expecting - the one from the nightmare he's had every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster is ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd - whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself -- Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss and monster both real imagined.
