September 2015 Debut of the Month Did you know that there’s a Bath Monster waiting to slurp up your dirty bath water? If you didn’t, you do now! Tony Ross brings the Bath Monster to gloriously grubby life in his new picture book, written by Colin Boyd. From the very first page, in which Mum casually dangles a freshly washed Jackson upside down over his bath, to the ending, which reveals that the Bath Monster and Jackson may have much more in common than Mum would hope, this is a Ross tour de force, illustrations brim-full of energy, originality and wit. Bath Monsters are certain to become part of bathtime rituals for families up and down the country as a result of this sparkling story! ~ Andrea Reece
The Bath Monster by Colin Boyd
As your bath water drains down the plughole, that slurping sound is the Bath Monster - dirty bath water is his Second favourite food. No one wants to find out what his First favourite food is...until Jackson decides he doesn't believe in the Bath Monster any more, and he is never going to have a bath again. Starving, the Bath Monster comes to see Jackson and it turns out his FIRST favourite food is...not little kids, but mud pies!
