Bestselling author of The Christmasuarus, Tom Fletcher, has written a brand new picture book perfect for bedtime, where a mischievous monster has invaded the pages of your child’s book!This read-aloud, interactive picture book treat invites children to make magic happen page by page, tilting, spinning and shaking the book, and then seeing the funny results when each page is turned. A fantastic celebration of all the fun that can be had with a book, with a wonderful wind-down bedtime ending!
Honestly this is adorable – from the art to the story concept too.
Its a straight forward read, well I mean obviously right it is a picture book, but the art is what made me pick it up.
The story itself is well thought out to get kids to interact with the book (without any lift the flap/spinning bits that usually get broken) so its great for young readers to get them involved.
The story itself is all about getting the Monster out of the book by moving the book in different ways, and when you finally achieve it the book acknowledges you probably don’t want a Monster in your bedroom so you summon it back to the book so that is really cute (cause the Monster is never portrayed as really scary) but its also probably helpful to those kids who are scared of Monsters.
