There is a grotesque creature who sneaks into town and eats up little children.  Terrifying!  But that’s not the worst of it — the monster seems to have warm, friendly feelings for our our unwitting, rhyming narrator.  She is witness to the carnage, and the monster visits her regularly, but she is not eaten.  And of course all the adults dismiss her boogeyman stories as fantasy.
