The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Barnaby is bored, so he makes a den. However, still bored, Barnaby wishes a monster would move in, which is a big mistake – because one does! The monster is called Burple, and his packed lunch won’t behave. But then Barnaby and the monster read books, build a rocket, and have a great time. Using make-believe, this brightly illustrated and engaging book cleverly turns boredom into fun. (Ages 2–5)

Synopsis

A Monster's Moved In! by Timothy Knapman

It's raining and Barnaby is bored. Then he has a brilliant idea: he's going to make a den. But a monster might move in! say Mum and Dad. Barnaby's den is made of cushions and bits of sofa - far too cosy for a monster. But playing by himself isn't much fun and soon Barnaby wishes a monster would move in. BIG MISTAKE! A laugh-out-loud romp from best-selling author, Timothy Knapman (Dinosaurs in the Supermarket and Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates). This funny picture book celebrates friendship, imagination and play. Children will love the bright and lively illustrations - a book to banish rainy day blues.
