A little girl keeps getting into trouble with her Mum, but it’s not her that leaves the lights on in every room or clothes all over the floor. She’s doing battle with a mob of monsters who just want to have a little bit of fun!
Each of the author's launch titles - Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle - have been brilliantly illustrated by a different artist and the result in each one is a riot of colour and comic flair as the kids take on Mums, Dads, and a few messy monsters, and pancakes, clothes and even cars come flying off the page. There's even some scary stuff in My Monster Mayhem.
The little girl in this book has a big problem: her house is overrun with all kinds of horrible monsters and they’re getting her into trouble!
She battles against them heroically, leaving lights on at night and splashing bath water to scare them away. But mum doesn’t understand why she behaves this way; she even thinks her daughter’s being naughty. Can you imagine!
'All four books [Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle] are all written by Anita Pouroulis] are a visual and storytime treat... they are absolutely wonderful and in parts I laughed out loud.' Sunday Times
