September 2015 Book of the Month Molly Maybe lives in Smallsbury, a sleepy town where nothing much ever happens. At least, not above ground! Underneath is a magical world, and the only way to get to it is via Milly’s very own Mundervator machine, handily located under her tree house. From the creator of the hugely popular Sir Charlie Stinky Socks books, this is a lively, exciting picturebook adventure brimming with fun and invention. Molly is a very appealing character though her dog Waggy, who is able to talk when they’re underground thanks to a special gadget on is collar, almost steals the show! More Molly please! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Molly Maybe's Monsters: The Dappity Doofer by Kristina Stephenson

Molly Maybe has a marvellous secret - she and her faithdul sidekick, Waggy Burns, are the only ones who can travel to an amazing monster world which mirrors our own. Take a ride in the incredible mundervator with Molly and help her solve a crisis in Undermunder.

A Day in the Life of Me

The alarm clock wakes me early – too early sometimes – but I’m glad it does – I must be up before anyone else. I need a quiet house (and the calming influence of the dawn chorus) in order to perfect my ‘master work-plan for the day’. I also need to pick a nice menu for supper, pack some sandwiches and a big bottle of water for Maddie’s geography trip and find that favourite little something for Charlie to take to school - just in case - (now where have I heard that before?).

At school I kiss the kids goodbye, remount my faithful bike and head back home. Home, which as I cycle towards it, is morphing magically into a place of work – an office. I’m clever you see: I make the beds, I wash up the breakfast things, and I hide away anything laundry-like, before I leave the house. I do it every morning, you know, so that by the time I return, the transformation has taken place. Wow!

This happens in a little room, which nestles neatly between the kitchen (which is, of course, on my return, no longer a kitchen but a place to refresh water pots and wash paint brushes) and the tiny courtyard (now bereft of all bikes bar mine), which has become a secret garden into which I look for inspiration and the occasional fairy.
