Thomas is visiting his grandpa today, and he couldn't be more excited. Grandpa's cottage doesn't have many TV channels, but it is right on the edge of the woods, and Thomas has been waiting all year to go exploring with his grandpa. In the woods, he learns all about birds, trees, nature, and fascinating animals from around the world. But there's one species Grandpa mentions that Thomas can't stop thinking about; Tree Monsters. Grandpa says they are nocturnal, that they creak and moan in the night, and that he should never get too close to them - or they might charge! Desperate to see one of these creatures, Thomas embarks on an exciting adventure, witnessing the wonderful, frightening, and sometimes tragic beauty of nature. As he discovers life in the most unexpected of places, and explores a real-life magic that must be protected, Thomas begins to wonder - who are the real monsters?

Michael Socha has written Thomas and the Tree Monster based on stories he told his own children and nieces and nephews whilst they were growing up. He always thought it was worth sharing the story more widely but only found the time to do so when he was able to retire from full time employment.
