Monstrous Book of Monsters

Written by Libby Hamilton

Illustrated by Jonny Duddle, Aleksei Bitskoff

Monstrous Book of Monsters Synopsis

Do you dare delve into the freakishly funny Monstrous Book of monsters where nothing is as it seems? Dr Thomas Jelly has packed his notebook with nauseating novelties and foul facts to teach readers how to avoid monsters, to spot them in the news or on the street and give us all a peek inside their dangerous (and smelly) world. At the end, readers learn that Dr Jelly has fallen foul of the infamous book monster - the readers themselves will be lucky to escape the same fate.

Monstrous Book of Monsters Press Reviews

Like a facetious Monster Manual for the lower-elementary-school set, this guide to the slimy, befouled and ghoulish begs to be pored over for hours, its small-scale tabs gleefully pried open and closed.--The New York TimesThis is a tongue-in-cheek, interactive guide to avoiding, identifying, capturing, and disposing of monsters, should the need arise.--Publishers Weekly
