Stuffed Monster, a short story by Dan Absalonson, follows a stuffed toy monster. The stuffed monster is a prize in a claw machine filled with dolls, farm animals, and teddy bears. The other toys didn't make him feel very welcome. But one day a boy named Zack picks him. Zack brings him home and introduces the stuffed monster to other toy monsters. All was finally going well for the stuffed monster. That is, until he came face to face with the cat...

I really enjoyed reading Stuffed Monster, a short story by Dan Absalonson. The book is relatable because many people have a stuffed animal that they love, no matter what a pet does to it. The characters were all likeable because Zack loved Stuffed Monster, whom he named Longclaw, and Stuffed Monster (A.K.A. Longclaw) is brave and faces the cat, even though he knows the dangers. I loved the ending, it was nice to know that everyone had a happy ending. The story is well developed and is very well written. The book has many funny parts, like when Longclaw threw the snowball at the cat. The book also has many action scenes, like when the cat attacked. The cat is very realistic, because many cats attack stuffed toys that aren't theirs. I would recommend Stuffed Monster by Dan Absalonson to young readers.
