Written by Elizabeth Laird

Part of the Tales by Rumi Series

Grobblechops Synopsis

Picked as 'Children's Mental Health Week Scheme' by The Reading Agency There's a monster hiding under the bed! This classic bedtime fear is hilariously brought to life by award-winning author Elizabeth Laird and Finnish illustrator Jenny Luncander. Amir thinks that a monster will come and eat him up! And maybe the monster will have a mum and dad too! But Dad reassures Amir that if the monster family comes to play, then the parents will have a good old chat whilst Amir makes a new friend.

Grobblechops Press Reviews

' Grobblechops is a delightful story about family and an innovative take on the monster under the bed trope brought to life through Jenny Lucander's quirky and original illustrations. We really love that this is a reimagined tale from philosopher Rumi, bringing a centuries old text to life in a new and exciting way. It is also a great book to explore overcoming fears within your setting.' - Seven Stories
