Multiple Award Winning picture book. In this great book for storytime comes a very silly, funny and lovable monster. The story follows all the possibilities for interesting adventures when a monster is born with some extremely colourful illustrations.


When A Monster Is Born by Sean Taylor

Children will delight in this anarchic picture book from a new author, bought to dramatic life by the illustrations of the ever popular artist, Nick Sharratt. This is a witty and highly original monster read!
