Synopsis

Samfaina De Monstres by Anita Pouroulis

The little girl in this book has a problem: her house is overrun with all kinds of horrible monsters and they're getting her into trouble! She battles against them heroically but mum doesn't understand why she does it; she even thinks her daughter's being naughty. Can you imagine! This lively, imaginative picture book is written by Anita Pouroulis and illustrated by Sholto Walker. It's theme is the great imagination of children (which sometimes becomes the great white lie!). The weird and wonderful monsters of this book are not really dangerous or scary even, though they aren't the prettiest creatures in the world. A perfect Halloween treat or for any occasion where you're feeling a little brave.

About the Author

Anita Pouroulis

Anita Pouroulis was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1969. She grew up there, the eldest of three siblings.

Anita worked as a primary school teacher for many years, both in South Africa and in the U.K. While teaching, she developed a passion for children’s books and read every single book in each and every school library! She also studied part time, completing an Honours Degree in Psychology. She then moved out of teaching for a while, landing what she calls her ‘best job ever’, writing and copy-editing for a teenage girls’ magazine based in Johannesburg.

“My daughter is an incredible source of inspiration for my stories,” she says, “As well as the memories of all my ‘other’ children I taught so many years ago!”
