Monstar, the Superhero Review

Featured Books for 5+ readers Featured Books for 7+ readers

Monstar is not your usual kind of pet.  She’s green and fluffy for a start and loves nothing more than dancing, eating green porridge and her blankey. But Monstar dreams of being a being a real, live superhero.  Her attempts however are anything but super. That is until one day she discovers robbers in the museum.  Will Monstar be able to unleash her inner superhero and save the day?  A delightful story about finding your inner hero and a most unusual kind of pet.

Red Early Reader books are the next step on your child's reading journey, encouraging independent reading with exciting stories and engaging illustrations.  Short accessible chapters make them ideal for newly confident readers - we also think they're great for sharing too!
