Monster Mash-Up

Devil Dog 

Join eminent monsterologist Dr Edvard Von Goosechaser for a thrilling investigation into claims that Prince Rupert's favourite pet Boye was actually a devil dog! Parliamentarians believed he could fly and sniff out traitors so come and meet the haunting hound yourself and decide whether he's just a dog or something significantly spookier!
