by Darrell F. Proctor
What if you had a monster growing inside of you, a parasite that was making you very sick? Would you want to get rid of it? Of course you would!
That’s what the cigarette monster does. He lives in a cigarette, and if you smoke, he gets inside of you. Cigarette smoke is his food, so every time you smoke a cigarette, he grows and grows. How do you get rid of him? Quit Smoking!
In The Cigarette Monster, Darrell Proctor gives us a childlike view of the nature of cigarettes and their dangers, complete with drawings of the destructive beast and his deeds. Read it with a child you love. You’ll be glad you did.
