Description
Either big or small, frightening or friendly, monsters change depending on how we perceive the world around us. They may help kids get over primordial fears or they may remain echoes of an adult’s darkest psychological fears. Inspired by Romanian folklore, "The Monster Guide" sets off to instruct both children and adults regarding the creatures that inhabit their homes and minds. A lot of kids go to bed early because of Old Man Ene, or eat all their soup when they hear the Boogeyman knocking at the door. Thus, this guide consists of a journey in the darkest corners of every monster’s psyche. Yes, they may be bad, ugly, grotesque, taunting and whatnot, but at the same time aren't they the ones that teach you not to steal? That insist you eat everything off your plate? That make you act polite? In a way, you may say that their soul purpose in this world is to help others. All they ask for in exchange is a bit of understanding.

  •               MOŞ ENE // OLD MAN ENE

    E greu săadormi liniştit când, pe nesimţite, Moş Ene intră în camera ta. El îţi presară nisip fin în ochi, îţi suflă-nceafă, apoi se uită la tine cum dormi. Dacă ar şti ce cred copiii despre el,probabil n-ar mai aborda problema în felul ăsta. Monstrul Ene are două umbrele:una ticsită cu poze pe interior, păstrată pentru copiii cuminţi şi alta urâtă şi gri pentru cei obraznici. Dacămeriţi, în timpul somnului Moş Ene deschide umbrela potrivită şi o ţinedeasupra ta ca să visezi frumos. Altfel, primeşti umbrela gri şi ai coşmaruritoată noaptea. Nimeni nu l-a văzutvreodată pe monstrul Ene, însă de n-ar fi avut asemenea metode, nici n-ar fifost considerat monstru. Are pielea albă şi o barbă lungă, la fel de albă,pentru că nu-i place să stea la soare (de asta locuieşte pe Lună). Ce-i drept, nu sunt prea multe lucruri de făcutacolo în timpul zilei. Cel mai des îl vei găsi pe Moş Ene pescuind stele (principalalui sursă de lumină) pe care, ori le topeşte şi le face lumânări, ori le ţinepe post de becuri. Mai colecţionează borcane în care îşi păstrează nisipulfermecat, sortat în funcţie de concentraţie, iar pasiunea pentru întuneric oîmparte cu bufniţa Paul. Cel mai bun prieten al lui e Omul Negru (se cunosc decând erau mici). În unele seri îi poţi vedea împărţind o sticlă de vin şi odiscuţie filosofică la reşedinţa Bau Bau din mijlocul Nicăieriului.

  • It's hard to drift off to sleep knowing that Old Man Ene may tip toe into your room. He sprinkles very fine sand into your eyes, blows on the back of your neck and then watches you sleep. If he'd know what kids think of him, he'd probably not do things this certain way. Ene has two umbrellas: one with pictures on the inside, for the kids who behave, and another that is gray and ugly, for those who don't. If you earn it, Old Man Ene opens the good umbrella and holds it just above your head for you to dream wonderful dreams. If you don't, you get the bad umbrella and have horrible nightmares all night. Nobody has ever seen Monster Ene, but if he wouldn't have had such strange methods, he wouldn't have been even considered a monster. His skin is white and his very long beard is also white because he doesn't really like the sun (that's why he lives on the Moon). There are not a lot of things to do there during the day. Every so often, you may find him fishing for stars(his source of light) which he then melts and makes candles, or just keeps as light bulbs. He also collects jars where he keeps his sand, sorted by concentration and he shares his love for darkness with his owl, Paul. His best friend is the Boogey Man (they've known each other since they were kids). Sometimes you may see them sharing a bottle of wine and a meaningful conversation in the Boogeyman's house in the middle of Nowhere.

  • BABA CLOANŢA // OLD LADY CLOANŢA


    B
  • Old Lady Cloanţa kidnaps children that wander too far away from home and takes them to her cottage. Sometimes parents willingly give up their kids (or threaten them they will if the kids don't behave). Cloanţa is one scary old lady: even her cottage is placed on chicken legs that go wherever they please (but they prefer dark forests). That's why she doesn't have a lot of visitors. She originally only cooked Children Soup but as times passed, she got the hang of cooking and even released her own Recipe Book. It's her passion, she watches all kinds of culinary shows and experiments with flavors. To be fair, her kitchen is also very well equipped. Adults are too stringy for her taste so she prefers to share her wisdom with them: she gives them anti-aging tips and tricks and reads their fortune. When princes wind up at her door on their way to save the princesses, she helps them with kind words, potions and talismans. Her place is packed full of them. She wears her hair long and uncombed, she doesn't really care about how she looks. Old Lady Cloanţa also has a sister somewhere in Russia who flies around in a magic mortar. They don't see each other all that often, but sometimes they chat on the phone all afternoon.

  • OMUL NEGRU // THE BOOGEYMAN


    Omul Negrueste un monstru universal. La noi, i se mai zice şi Bau Bau, însă el spune căacest nume nu-l reprezintă. Părinţii apelează la el din mai multe motive,depinde de zona în care te afli (poţi găsi fraţi sau veri de-ai lui prin toatălumea, sub diferite pseudonime). De cele mai multe ori, copiii sunt ameninţaţicu venirea lui atunci când nu îşi mănâncă supa sau sunt obraznici. Politicos,Omul Negru îşi anunţă venirea cu o bătaie la uşă. Nu le face rău copiiilor, doar îi ia la casalui din mijlocul Nicăieriului şi stă cu ei până şi-au învăţat lecţia (pentruefect,îi încuie într-o cameră separată). Între timp el stă în fotoliul luipreferat şi citeşte romane siropoase, sorbind dintr-un pahar de vin. Maivorbeşte la telefon cu Moş Ene, care îimai face cu mâna când Omul Negru se uită la el prin telescop. E un monstrurafinat, nu-l vezi fără trenci şi pălărie (de asta nimeni nu i-a văzut vreodatăfaţa). După amiezile le petrece ascultând jazz la gramofonul cel vechi(moştenit de la bunicul lui) sau plimbându-se prin Nicăieri şi făcândfotografii. El spune că lumina din momentul acela al zilei e cea mai prielnică.Cel mai mult îi place să fotografieze cu aparatul său Polaroid pentru că n-arerăbdare să aştepte să îi fie developate filmele.

  • The Boogeyman is an universal monster. Over here, they call him Bau Bau, but he thinks that name does not represent him in any way. Parents call on him for various reasons, depending on the location (you may find brothers and cousins of his all over the world, under different names). Most of the time, parents invite him over when children don't eat their soup or misbehave. Politely, the Boogeyman knocks on the door to announce his arrival. He never hurts children, he just takes them to his house in the middle of Nowhere and keeps them there until they've learned their lesson (for a dramatic effect, he locks them up in a separate room). While the kids are learning their lessons, he sits in his comfy chair, drinks red wine and reads cheesy romantic novels. Now and then, he talks on the phone with Old Man Ene, who waves at him when he peaks through his telescope. The Boogeyman is a very refined monster, you'll never see him without his trench coat and hat (that's why nobody has ever seen his face). In the afternoon he either listens to jazz music played on his old gramophone (which he got from his grandfather) or takes a walk through the middle of Nowhere and takes pictures. He says that the light in that certain time of day is best for doing that. He likes taking photographs with his Polaroid camera because he's to impatient to wait for photos on film to be developed.

  • GHIONOAIA

     Ghionoaiaeste genul de monstru care e dat exemplu copiiilor, însă nu se implică activ înviaţa lor. La origine, Ghionoaia era o fată pe care părinţii au transformat-oîn pasăre fiindcă era neascultătoare. Acum, locuieşte singură într-un castel,iar dacă cineva încearcă să se apropie de ea, este omorât pe loc. Când eramică, înainte să fie transformată în pasăre, şi-a dorit să devină balerină.Asta i se trage de la cutiuţa muzicală primită de la mama ei (pe când încă oiubea, spune ea). În urma transformării a început să sufere de depresie şi sămănânce multe prăjituri. Nu e deloc mulţumită de cum arată şi de asta spargeorice oglindă îi iese în cale. Preferă singurătatea pentru că nu-i place delocsă-şi împartă lucrurile cu alţii, nici măcar cu sora sa, Scorpia. Din cauzaasta, are tendinţa să adune şi să păstreze foarte multe obiecte care nu aunicio utilitate.
  • Ghionoaia is the kind of monster that is set as an example to children, but isn't an active presence in their lifes. Originally, Ghionoaia was a girl that was transformed into a bird by her parents, because she misbehaved. Now she lives in a castle and anyone who tries to get near her is killed on sight. When she was young (before the transformation) she wanted to be a ballerina. She got that from the music box received from her mother (when she still loved her,Ghionoaia says). After the unfortunate incident, depression started to sink in and she started eating a lot of cookies and cupcakes. She's very unhappy with how she looks, so every mirror in her house is broken. She prefers being alone, because sharing her things with others isn't her most favorite thing in the world (not even with her sister, Scorpia). Because of that, she has the tendency to keep a lot of useless things (and is, in fact, a horder).

  • OMUL CURCĂ // TURKEY MAN

    Ceva mai puţin cunoscut, Omul Curcă este un monstru ce poate fi văzut cuprecădere în mediul rural. Copiii care au obiceiul de a merge “la furat”noaptea din curţile oamenilor pot da peste el. Este considerat un fel de paznical grădinilor, el apără lanurile de porumb, viţa de vie, merii şi dovlecii (înfunctie de anotimp). Niciodată nu face rău copiiilor, dar îi sperie cel maitare atunci când stă cu spatele său cocoşat înspre ei şi scoate sunete de curcă(altă asemănare cu pasărea asta nu există). Când face asta are grijă să poarteun cojoc lung, asta e uniforma lui. Locuinţa lui e în hambarul părăsit (altmotiv pentru care copiii se tem de el) al lui Nea Mitică, care i-a dat şi unpetec de pământ, să-şi facă grădina lui personală. Are tot felul de instrumenteşi poţiuni speciale cu care o îngrijeşte, iar niciodată nu foloseşte chimicale.Seara mai stă de vorbă cu Mitică despre viaţă şi cât de repede trece timpul. Îicompătimeşte pe “orăşeni” că n-au parte de ce are el aşa că, din când în când,după ce culege recolta, se duce şi o împarte oamenilor de la oraş. De curândşi-a găsit şi un hobby: face machete de vaporaşe pe care le montează însticle. Când nu are grijă de grădina sa,Omul Curcă e cel mai fericit atunci când stă sub cerul liber, cu picioareleafundate în iarbă
  • Omul Curcă is more of an underground monster that can be spotted in the countryside. Children see him when they go to steal fruit, vegetables or flowers from other people's yards. He's thought to be the garden keeper, he protects the corn fields, grape and pumpkin plantations or apple trees (depending on the season). He never hurts the children, he just turns his hunchback towards them and makes turkey noises (that's the only resemblance he has with this bird). While doing this, he wears a long coat, that's his uniform. Omul Curcă lives in mister Mitică's abandoned barn (another reason why kids are afraid of him). Mitică also gave him some land so that he can grow and take care of his own garden. In the evening, they contemplate life together and how quickly time passes. Our monster owns all kinds of tools and special potions and never uses chemicals. He feels bad for city folk who don't have what he has, so when his fruit and vegetables are ready, he spreads the joy to others. Not long ago he found himself a hobby: he loves making model-ships, the ones in the pretty bottles. When he's not taking care of his garden, Omul Curcă is happiest when laying barefoot on the grass, under the starlit sky.
