Charles just moved to the big city, away from all his friends and his big house, into an old creepy apartment building that his dad wants to renovate. If that weren’t bad enough, it turns out that there are monsters in the closets – like, literal monsters. Like goblins and trolls and ghosts.
Turns out those monsters live all over the city, in a parallel community – they have homes and families and grocery stores, just like the humans. They live in constant fear of being discovered by humans, but humans also fear them, since you know, sometimes they eat people.
Charles originally hires Margo, a monster detective, to work things out between him and the goblin in his closet, but he becomes fascinated by her work with the monsters, and as a budding journalist, he can’t pass up the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to break a story as big as this: that the monsters in your closet are real…and that they’re just like us.
