The Lovereading4Kids comment

A little girl keeps getting into trouble with her Mum, but it’s not her that leaves the lights on in every room or clothes all over the floor. She’s doing battle with a mob of monsters who just want to have a little bit of fun!

Each of the author's launch titles - Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle - have been brilliantly illustrated by a different artist and the result in each one is a riot of colour and comic flair as the kids take on Mums, Dads, and a few messy monsters, and pancakes, clothes and even cars come flying off the page. There's even some scary stuff in My Monster Mayhem.

Synopsis

My Monster Mayhem by Anita Pouroulis

The little girl in this book has a big problem: her house is overrun with all kinds of horrible monsters and they’re getting her into trouble!

She battles against them heroically, leaving lights on at night and splashing bath water to scare them away. But mum doesn’t understand why she behaves this way; she even thinks her daughter’s being naughty. Can you imagine!

Reviews

'All four books [Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle] are all written by Anita Pouroulis] are a visual and storytime treat... they are absolutely wonderful and in parts I laughed out loud.' Sunday Times

‘Outstanding artwork, powerfully imaginative, great fun.’ David Orme, poet, children’s writer and author of ‘Unlocking the Poet in Every Child’

About the Author

Anita Pouroulis

Anita Pouroulis was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1969. She grew up there, the eldest of three siblings.

Anita worked as a primary school teacher for many years, both in South Africa and in the U.K. While teaching, she developed a passion for children’s books and read every single book in each and every school library! She also studied part time, completing an Honours Degree in Psychology. She then moved out of teaching for a while, landing what she calls her ‘best job ever’, writing and copy-editing for a teenage girls’ magazine based in Johannesburg.

“My daughter is an incredible source of inspiration for my stories,” she says, “As well as the memories of all my ‘other’ children I taught so many years ago!”
