Monstersong

A monster under the bed is a good reason for not wanting to go to sleep. Many parents will be familiar with the ritual of checking that all is safe under the bed. This particular little boy is visited by no fewer than five monsters, and instead of getting rid of them, his mum lets them all - big and ugly - into his bed. It's a peculiar way for a mother to behave, but the way the boy copes with the situation is amazingly inventive. Comical picture book with funny illustrations and text in rhyme. Surprising and amusing punch line.

Reviews

"A familiar trope gets a clever twist here, with a crowd-pleasing kicker at the end."
