How can Harry tame the monster who comes to scare him in the night? Luckily first Mum and then dad come up with a clever plan. Suddenly, the monster doesn’t seem so scary after all. With a strong domestic setting this is a reassuring story for all.


Harry and the Monster by Sue Mongredien

One night, a monster stomps into Harry's dreams. The next day, Harry is scared to go to sleep. If he comes back, just imagine him with pink pants on his head, suggests Mum. He won't be scary then! Can Mum's clever plan possibly work?

A warm, funny story by Sue Mongredien (The Secret Mermaid and Kitten Club) and illustrated by Nick East (Who's For Dinner and Goodnight Digger), Harry and the Monster is the perfect picture book for children worried about nighttime monsters or bad dreams!
