Synopsis

Calm Down Boris by Sam Lloyd

An interactive book with a difference. The reader is asked to help Boris brush his hair ready for his trip to the park - and gets smothered in grateful kisses. The same happens when we feed him, and when he gets to the park none of the other little monsters want to play with him because he's so loud and boisterous. This special anniversary edition celebrates the huge success of Calm Down, Boris! around the world. It has continued to receive prizes and praise since its publication in July 2006.

Reviews

t's an utter genius idea in book form, a nice big bright tickly monster of your very own to help you read and act out this fabulous knockabout tale. Kissy Kissy KISSY!!! -- Phil May Read it Daddy!
