Funny, surprising and completely unputdownable, this is the third in a trilogy. Surreal with hugely appealing out of this world characters. Ratbridge is an awe inspiring place to visit and re-visit. Pants Ahoy is the first, and the Man in the Iron Socks is the second. is the third. The three of them were originally published in one volume entitled Here be Monsters.

Synopsis

Here Be Monsters, Cheese Galore! by Alan Snow

There is trouble in Ratbridge - both above ground in the town and underground, where the boxtrolls and cabbageheads live. And the awful Snatcher has plans to make the trouble oh so very much worse...Can Arthur and his friends summon up all their cunning and save the day? With nearly two hundred incredible black and white drawings, this is the third part of Alan Snow's astonishing illustrated journey into the unbelievably weird world of Ratbridge.

Reviews

Here Be Monsters kicks the imagination into overdrive with belting characters, adorable illustrations and other fantastic inventions that will keep a child's appetite for fun fully satisfied. With superb illustrations and a lavishly imaginative plot, Here Be Monsters suggests that Roald Dahl might well have a 21st century successor - and that JK Rowling could have some competition on her hands. The Big Issue Snow's drawings suggest a Dickensian town, and his caricatures with their gormless faces and his lovingly rendered machinery make this book as much fun to look at as it is to read. NICOLETTE JONES, The Sunday Times Snow has written an amiable, at times surreal story accompanied by hundreds of fantastic black ink drawing, executed in a style half way between Mervyn Peake and Edward Gorey. It's not often a text gets as generously illustrated at this these days, and some of the architectural drawings are particularly atmospheric. Books for Keeps The story engages the reader quickly. It is a zany and funny story as quirky as the author's picture books... the visual imagery is fantastic in both senses of the word. The sheer vibrant fun of the story shines throughout.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
