Defensive tactics / Safe buildings / Libraries are usually safe as well, since monsters don't like being shushed.

There's only one monster in the entire Indian Ocean. His name is Ian and his tongue is often mistaken for unusual coral.

Monster eyes are a great delicacy for ogres. (Their favorite dessert is eyes cream.)

Thank you, Dr. Thomas Jelly, for opening my eyes to the reality that monsters do indeed live amongst us. For example, I know now that the Thievintree is the reason my hats and scarves go missing when I'm walking in the woods and that I'm not a bad cook, it's the Oven Grubbler's fault the cooking gets burned. Ever felt like a portrait was following you with its eyes? It probably was - apparently monsters love to hide behind them to spy on us. Got the hiccups? It's just the Micro-Frogompolis hiding in your stomach. This book is full of great tips on how to identify, avoid, capture, and just generally be aware of monsters. But beware of the pink one!!
