Chucks a cat with a great life—until Katie goes away to college and his best friend moves. Left all alone, Chuck starts to venture farther and farther into the neighborhood and one fateful night finds himself face-to-face with a beast as big and black as death. His name is Rotten Willy—and hes a dog with a heart of gold.lthough there was no monster in Lake Lawtonka, one night there was a sneak attack by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or free after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.
