Rayburn and Timmy from "Monster on the Hill"
Rayburn the monster and Timmy the plucky urchin from Rob Harrell's book "Monster on the Hill":
At some point in the story, the kid gets accidentally turned into a "shmushroom." Broccoli probably wouldn't help, but the remedy offered in the book: "psychofruit juice" was not available in Ansel's lunch today.
Ansel really liked this book about a depressed monster with self esteem problems. He was quite annoyed when his older brother, who gets to stay up a bit later than he does, was able to finish the story before him.
I did read the ending to him early the next morning.
