Synopsis

You're Not So Scary, Sid! by Sam Lloyd

Following in the hugely successful hoofprints of Boris and Dudley, Sid is a monster who fancies himself as a big scary finger-nibbler. Readers are advised to sit on their hands while Sid is on the rampage, but then it's suggested that perhaps Sid isn't as scary as he'd like to think? Readers are encouraged to roar loudly back at Sid, who is reduced to a quivering wreck by the turn-around, quakes with terror and runs home crying, where he gets his favourite tea - FISH fingers! Lots of opportunities for interaction with the reader and child who is being read to, with questions and suggestions made in the text.

Reviews

A cleverly designed hand puppet book ... perfect for young readers to stick their hands in and pretend to be Sid roaring or pretending to eat. Bright and bold paintings provide a full colour background on each double page spread. The text looks like it's been painted on too, with letters of varying size and thickness, but it's all clear and imaginative. A lovely title, sure to be a favourite with little ones. Books for Keeps This is a wonderful interactive book for young readers. Not only does it encourage lots of acting along the way ... but it also comes complete with a built in puppet so you can take it in turns to play the part of Sid the scary monster. It comes with the warning to mind your fingers, but perhaps parents should mind their ears, as children get involved with the roaring element. Baby Surrey This was everybody's favourite. It's a fabulous story. The interactive text encouraged the children to band together as the whole class roared along with great gusto. This book was a brilliant inspiration for our own monster puppets. Child Education Plus - Scholastic

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
