The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award 2009. Night fears are calmed in this beautiful picture book capturing moments familiar to many parents and children. In the middle of the night, Molly hears something on the stairs. She imagines all the monsters it could be and conjures up images of a sharp-snapping crocodile, a giant giraffe, and an enormous elephant or even something unspecified – a night monster. But Molly finds that she’s not the only one surprised in the night…The night time blues used in this book make it rich in atmosphere. Click here to visit the Chris Wormell page on Lovereading4kids.
What the Kate Greenaway Award judges said:
'A tour de force in monochrome. The blue is perfect to convey the night-time action and Wormell’s use of light is fabulous. The proportions of the animals are absolutely right and not at all anthropomorphical. And Molly is a great role model!'
Molly and the Night Monster by Christopher Wormell
When Molly wakes up in the middle of the night, she hears the sound of a step on the stairs. It could be a crocodile creeping up to catch her, or a giant giraffe outside on the landing, or even a night monster come to gobble her up, but when Molly surprises the tiptoeing beast, she gets an even bigger surprise of her own.
