This the story of a girl who's older brother is eaten by a monster. It is also a story about her feeling that she is probably better off because of this. Rather than risking her neck to get her brother back, young Lumie focuses on enjoying the brotherless life and figuring out what to feed the monster that ate her sibling. On the positive side, this book teaches children the important lesson of pragmatism.
