Written by Ed Shankman and Illustrated by David O'Neill

Meet Champ, the "Monster" of Lake Champlain. Champ is seen through the eyes of a likable girl who sets out from her favorite spot by a maple tree and finds herself by the lakeshore. She meets Champ, who turns out to be a very kid-friendly monster―inviting the girl to sit on his head and ride with him through the Vermont countryside. Together, these unlikely friends dash past farms and mills and over covered bridges, meet some cows and eventually return to the girl's favorite maple tree. The charming story ends as it began, with friendship.
