For six year old Sam the world is a sad and frightening place. His father has gone. His mother is consumed by depression. He has no one. No parent to clean his clothes. No ally to ward off the bully at school. And no hero to defeat the terrifying Laundry Monster that dwells in his basement. 

As the mountains of Dirty Laundry grow larger, the insults at school grow meaner and the ROARS of the Monster grow louder. When Sam cannot find someone to aid him, he is left with no other choice: He must brave the Laundry Monster alone.
