The Me Monster



Jack E. Wurst is the worst! He has a “Me Monster” living deep inside him!

Jack is mean and selfish, never thinking of anyone but himself. He screams and yells at everyone. Worse than that, he is a bully. Whether at home or at school, Jack enjoys being unkind to others.

Everyone has given up on Jack. Except his parents! Things change quickly when Jack’s mother and father find a special way for Jack to see the terrible monster inside him.

This is a fun, but uplifting story that teaches how to overcome selfishness and discover the joy of putting others first.
