A brilliantly rich and strange fantasy adventure that will make us all believe in monsters - be they good, bad or somewhere in between. It is a well-known fact that fairies are born from a baby's first laugh. What is not as well documented is how monsters come into being ... This is the story of a creature who is both strange and unique. When he hatches down in the vast underground lair where monsters dwell, he looks just like a human boy - much to the disgust of everyone watching. Even the grumpy gargoyles who adopt him and nickname him `Imp' only want him to steal chocolate for them from the nearby shops. He's a child with feet in both worlds, and he doesn't know where he fits. But little does Imp realise that Thunderguts, king of the ogres, has a great and dangerous destiny in mind for him, and he'll stop at nothing to see it come to pass ...
