LoveReading View on Monster Busters

Interest Age 5-8 Rosa and her friend Ivan have three monster escapades in this short but satisfying little collection. There’s an encounter with a real life monster in a ghost train for Rosa – Ivan comes to the rescue; high jinks at school when new teacher Mr Troll turns out to be just that; and a narrow escape for their school party when the school–bus accidentally drives down the throat of a Grubbybats! Cornelia Funke’s deadpan telling gives each story a true fairy tale feel while Gladys Ambrus’s lovely illustrations match the text perfectly. Each story is a model of invention, short but really satisfying. One of Barrington Stoke’s Little Gems series the book is accessible to all children, including those with dyslexia.
