The Lovereading4Kids comment

The title poem launches a witty and varied anthology made the more tempting by the suitably benign monster on its attractive cover. Brian Moses writes entertainingly about a funky crocodile called Burt, What An Ardvark Likes to Do Best and When The Queen Came to Tea.

Synopsis

The Monster Sale by Brian Moses

Monsters that moan and groan and wail, Buy your monsters at the Monster Sale. Chickens who wear jumpers, all kinds of monsters, a puppy's favourite chews (a lucky dip of forgotten socks), staying awake waiting for your birthday, a bear in his underwear...

In his first collection for younger children, well-known poet Brian Moses has provided a funny and witty snapshot of family life, with a bit of fantasy added in.

Perfect for sharing at home or at school.

'A fun bedside book Irish Examiner 'There's something for everyone in this compact book.' Nayu's Reading Corner Blog

'A collection (of children's poetry) should be fun, easily readable in language that youngsters can read and it should be laid out in a style that appeals to them to keep them reading and saying One more and then I'll put the book down. This book does all of that.' Our Book Reviews
