The cover shows a monster wearing a T-shirt that says, "I ❤ Wolves".
Noah Beinstock is a middle-schooler who wears glasses and is often called 'Bean' by friends and bullies. He meets a boy his age named Monroe Sternom. As time passes, he begins to suspect Monroe is not human. His other friends tell him not to worry until he finds out they ARE monsters--werewolves specifically, but it is not mentioned--and that they want to turn him into one as well. Noah winds up being turned into one as well but enjoys his new life as he can now get back at the bullies.
Pre-release cover art
An unused version of the cover for the book How I Met My Monster features a slightly different design. The most obvious way that the images differ are in the messages on the shirt; the pre-release cover uses the phrase, "I ❤ Werewolves" instead of the phrase, "I ❤ Wolves", which was used on actual printings of the book. Additionally, the color saturation of the final version of the cover is different than that of the pre-release cover.
- The title and summary are a parody of the TV series How I Met Your Mother.
