- Beautifully illustrated with the delightful sketches that accompanied early editions, The Monster is accompanied by two more of Crane's wonderful stories - The Blue Hotel and His New Mittens.
- The Monster (1898) is the story of an African-American coachman who is branded a 'monster'after being hideously disfigured whilst saving his master's son from a fire. It explores the themes of prejudice, fear and isolation in small town America.
- The Blue Hotel (1898) is a fascinating Expressionist tale about a man who gets into trouble after staying at a hotel.
- His New Mittens (1899) is the heartwarming story of a boy's attempt to run away from home after his mother forbids him from playing snowballs with his new mittens.
- Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers as the stories would have been when first published well over a century ago, the collection is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read and studied throughout the world.
- This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text.
