The Lovereading4Kids comment

This was Sally Grindley’s second book published some years ago now and remains one of the most eagerly sought-out picture books for toddlers. Knock, knock who’s there?... Each time there's a knock at the door, there's a different monster, but each time they're wearing the same tartan slippers. First at the door is a great big gorilla with fat furry arms and white teeth. Next time there's a wicked old witch at the door, then a creepy ghost, then a fierce dragon. Illustrations that are utterly beguiling are by one of the UK’s most talented picture book artists, Anthony Browne.
