Left alone at the dinner table to finish the remains of his meal (a single, enormous pea), 8-year-old Evan wishes he had a real live monster to eat his peas and play with him. When a real live monster actually arrives, life is turned upside down for Evan and his family in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.

The monster, named Pea, immediately befriends Evan and his little sister, Sue. Pea helps clean, spies on the parents, acts out stories about princesses and space aliens and even takes Evan and Sue to visit Monster World -- but the children have to keep talking the monster out of eating their parents!

When Pea hides under the table during breakfast -- and steals pancakes from people's plates -- the distracted, technology-addicted parents finally discover the monster under the table. The family has to decide whether to send the monster back to Monster World or accept it as a member of their family.
