During a faculty versus the students baseball game, the teachers try some dirty tricks to win. Luckily, the students have a monster on their team. With the help of Gabby's beastly pet, Dwight, the student team might stand a chance of winning. Or, maybe not! Turns out Dwight's not exactly a skilled player.

Monster in the Outfield mixes reality with fantasy. Obviously, monsters do not exist in the real world, but it’s fun for kids to see what it could be like if you had a pet monster that went to school with you. The graphics are great and the reading level is great for struggling readers. For kids there is a glossary of words in the graphic novel they may not know the meaning too. Also, there’s also instructions of how students can draw their very own monster. For teacher and librarians, there is a great set of discussion questions and writing prompts that can be used with the book. Definitely another great graphic novel for kids.
