Bobby and his teacher don’t get on, in fact in his eyes she’s a monster. An accidental meeting in the park however, when Bobby saves Miss Kirby’s favourite hat (it was a present from her granny) changes his view of her completely: before our eyes Miss Kirby gradually transforms from an ugly green ogre into a smiling curly-haired young woman. It’s a witty way to show that teachers are human too, and that the way you treat people affects the way they behave. Brown’s stylish illustrations are wonderfully expressive and there are two superb wordless scenes, one that perfectly captures the awkwardness the two feel at their accidental meeting, the other demonstrating Miss Kirby’s new generosity to Robert. An original picture book that cleverly delivers its message. ~ Andrea Reece
Bobby has a problem at school. It's his teacher, Miss Kirby. She stomps, she roars, and she won't even let him throw paper aeroplanes in class...what a monster! One day the unthinkable happens when Bobby bumps into Miss Kirby outside school. However, he soon finds out there's more to her than meets the eye.
This beautifully illustrated and brilliantly funny book from award-winning artist Peter Brown shows that monsters, and teachers, are not always as bad as they seem.
It's a stylish and very funny look at the relationship between a boy and his teacher. The Bookseller
