August 2022 Debut of the Month

The first in a series, Ian Mark’s Monster Hunting for Beginners presents a likeable, unlikely hero with a comic quest to curb the chaos being created a bunch of ogres. With Louis Ghibault’s lively illustrations adding to the humorous havoc, this breezy debut is suffused in a spirit of learning to face your fears, and ideal for readers who love Shrek’s fairy tale mash-ups.

“I’m small for my age. I wear glasses. I’m clumsy. I’m not built for trouble.” It’s fair to say that Jack is something of a reluctant hero and monster hunter, and yet monster hunting is exactly what he has to do when an ogre appears in his garden and somehow, against all odds, he defeats it. As a result, Jack becomes apprenticed to ancient monster-hunter Stoop and journeys to Cornwall to (hopefully…) overcome an entire crew of ogres.

Bursting with witty one-liners and a sense of winging it and pulling together, this is a top read for 8+ year-olds who can’t get enough of fiendishly funny, fast-paced adventures.
