December 2013 Book of the Month “Fat Faced, Jelly Bellied, Worm Tailed” – these are some of the insults that Little Green Monster selects to hurl at a newcomer to school. But Little Green Monster has made a very big mistake about who he is calling names! Lots of options of insults are possible in this mix and match title which will be sure to make young readers go away knowing that name calling is seriously not a good thing to do!

Synopsis

Little Big Mouth by Jeanne Willis

Mix and match the monsters! It's Blue Monster's first day at Monster Academy and Little Green Monster thinks it's really funny to call him rude names. Fat face! Jelly belly! Spotty botty! So how come no one else is laughing? Little Green Monster soon learns why when he finds out that the new student is actually the new teacher!

Children will learn an important lesson as to why you shouldn't call names, as well as having fun mixing and matching the monster body parts. It is a humorous novelty picture book dealing subtly with the issue of bullying. It is ideal for reading aloud, the split-page, mix-and-match format makes this hilarious storybook different every time.

Reviews

With ingenious use of split pages, children will love the funny assortment of insults and images they can conjure up. And there's a useful lesson on why it's not nice - or prudent - to be rude. Junior
