A MONSTER CALLS Giveaway – Signed Novel, Soundtrack, and More

A MONSTER CALLS is receiving critical praise and attention as a tear-jerking story of how a monster helps a child deal with grief.  Based on a true story, author Patrick Ness inherited the personal account of Siobhan Dowd who was dying of breast cancer and came up with the concept of the visiting monster. As A MONSTER CALLS expands nationwide on January 6th, we’ve partnered with Focus Features to giveaway an A MONSTER CALLS prize pack to prep you for the film ahead of its Oscar run.

A visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

Close your eyes and let your imagination do the work. Listen to Liam Neeson as he reads the first chapter of Patrick Ness’ A MONSTER CALLS:
