Discussion Questions:

  • What do you like most about your house?
  • What makes a creature a monster?
  • What does “home” mean to you? Is it the place or a feeling?

  • Does your family decorate your house for the holidays? If so, do you decorate inside, outside, or both?
  • What’s your favorite holiday to decorate for?
