Monsters, monsters, everywhere! In this third book in the series, Alexander goes up against shadow smashers. These monsters can jump from shadow to shadow and cause problems such as giving irregular suntans, ruining photos, and tying someone's shoes together. They're wreaking havoc all over town! Meanwhile, a member of Alexander's Super Secret Monster Patrol (SSMP) may turn out to be a monster! Fun black-and-white illustrations bring the action to life throughout.
