The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2016 | April 2016 Debut of the Month Nibbles the monster is as impetuous and cheeky as children in their wildest dreams. On page one readers release him from a crate, then watch as he rampages through not just his book but others too leaving anarchy in his wake. He nibbles his way into the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, giving Goldilocks a nasty shock; Little Red Riding Hood is furious when he interferes in her story; and the giant in Jack and the Beanstalk calls him a hooligan! No sooner is Nibbles back in his crate than he’s nibbled through the back cover and escaped again. Emma Yarlett has great fun with the books-within-a-book format and die-cut pages show physical signs of nibbling. This funny, clever book will be a big hit with children. ~ Andrea Reece

Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yarlett
Nibbles is a very naughty book monster - he's chomping, munching and nibbling his way through fairytales that don't belong to him! Can you help catch him and put him back in his own story?
Children will love to lift the flaps, peek through the peep holes, and chase Nibbles through a fantastical world of books, in this quirky story, exquisitely illustrated by Emma Yarlett (My Daddy's Going Away and Bear's Big Bottom).
Jam-packed full of your kids' favourite fairy tales including Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
