This books takes the traditional night before Christmas poem and adds a spooky element to it. Miss Devel is feeling harassed by her monsters’ bad manners. When the monsters finally go to bed, Miss Devel is woken up by a huge crash and a visit from Frankenstein who has brought a tree for Saint Nick. Saint Nick has brought some special present for the monsters, but when he falls through the ceiling the little monsters attack the presents. Everyone is happy until they realize that poor Frankenstein didn’t receive any presents. Saint Nick’s solution is one that will make everyone, including Miss Devel, very happy.
