There’s an important life lesson tucked into the pages of this action-packed and very funny picture book. Blue Monster’s parents give him pretty much everything he wants, but nothing makes him happy, at least not for long. He gets bored so quickly that what is entertaining in the morning just makes him bored and grumpy by the afternoon. As his search for satisfaction leads him into bigger adventures and more absurd situations he ends up on a tropical island but in the pitch dark because he’s swallowed the sun. Children will understand how he feels and recognise just what he needs to be happy. Author and illustrator have equal fun with this story and it’s very entertaining with lots for parent and child to point out and discuss. ~ Andrea Reece

What will it take for Blue Monster to realise there are some things that money can't buy? An original, humorous and unforgettable fable from the creators of the award-winning The First Slodge, perfect for introducing little ones to the idea of materialism and helping them realise the importance of family.
