Monster Day at Work by Sarah Dyer


Monster Day at Work by Sarah Dyer

Little monster spends a day at work with his father. First he has to dress and choose which tie to wear. Then he must travel with Dad and all the other commuters. At work he eats the biscuits at the meeting, colours the graphs his father makes on the computer, goes to the canteen for lunch and even stops off for a drink on the way home. Monster thinks his father has it easy at work. Sarah Dyer's highly entertaining portrayal of a child's-eye view of the adult world of work is full of wit and charm and will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Written and illustrated with great humour by a wonderful rising picture-book star, creator of the Smarties Award winning Five Little Fiends, as well as Clementine and Mungo, Princess for a Day, and for Frances Lincoln, Mrs Muffly's Monster.


A wonderful child's view of adult life, portrayed with gentle humour in charming illustrations. Great for reading before those 'go to work
