Thoughts

>>I would not be surprised if the kids at Monster House were the first human ones to whom he was a friendly figure rather than a scary monster.<<

It could be. Then again, he might have had another household prior to finding the narrator.

>> (But really, I know ~nothing about his existance before moving in with the narrator, so that may be way off-base.) <<

He hasn't been greatly talkative with me either, thus far.

>>Being a bit of a marshmallow about a kid who needs you is ... well, it's pretty reasonable for a human. <<

True.

*ponder* Looking at the poems so far, the monsters mostly seem pretty contextual: they are gentle and friendly with people they know, either gentle or invisible to people who are decent or haven't bothered them, but can be anywhere from pesky to vicious with people who annoy or threaten them.

>>Aye, but what does that curve look like?<<

I suspect a bell curve, though possibly a squashed one here or there. The "will not see" end may be higher than a regular bell end, for instance.
