It is confirmed that V396 Mon is a shallow W-type contact binary system with a mass ratio q=2.554(±0.004) and a degree of contact factor f=18.9%(±1.2%). A period investigation based on all available data shows that the period of the system includes a long-term decrease (dP/dt=-8.57x10-8days/yr) and an oscillation (A3=0.0160day, T3=42.4yr). They are caused by angular momentum loss and light-time effect, respectively. The suspect third body is possibly a small M-type star (about 0.31 solar mass). Description: We carried out new CCD photometric observations of V396 Mon in the BVRI bands on 2009 November 16 and 17, using the 1024x1024 PI1024 BFT camera attached to the 85cm telescope at the Xinglong Station of the National Astronomical Observatories of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The filter system was a standard Johnson-Cousins-Bessel multicolor CCD photometric system built on the primary focus.
