    The boy is feeling sad and lonely. The monster is a good monster who is comforting him. It looks like a good monster because it has a smile and the boy feels comfortable around it.

    The boy has a friendly monster who looks after him. The boy feels safe around the monster as you can see that he looks comfortable and not afraid of it,
