Monsters, stay out of this room!
You have no business here.

Cujo's a nice dog. He just happens to live in Castle Rock, where Bad Things happen, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

Bats are nasty flying rodents. Bats that live in caves in Castle Rock are apt to be rabid bats.

The Trenton's—husband Vic, wife Donna, son Tad—are nice people. They just happen to have moved to Castle Rock, where Bad Things happen.

What happens to Cujo, and those unlucky enough to be near him, you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. The bats are flying.....

This book is for my brother, David, who held my hand crossing West Broad Street, and who taught me how to make skyhooks out of old coathangers. The trick was so damned good I just never stopped. I love you, David.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, a monster came to the small town of Castle Rock, Maine.
