My Monster Mayhem
My Monster Mayhem by Anita Pouroulis, Illustrated by Sholto Walker
Are you forever getting into trouble for things you haven’t done? Then perhaps you’ve got a Scrapadapadocus in your skink or a Lumpa Loofis in your closet?
‘My Monster Mayhem’ is all about the fun and power of a child’s imagination- a truly wonderful story that young children will love.
Anita is a writer of children’s books. Before she started writing for children, she was a schoolteacher and also worked on magazines as a copy editor and writer. Anita loves words, especially how they can create pictures in your mind. Her favourite thing is reading a good book with a hot cup of tea, on a rainy day. And sometimes on not-so-rainy days too.
In this lively and imaginative picture book, the main character has a monster excuse for everything … water all over the bathroom floor? It’s the fault of the bulging-eyed Biver Quiver, a messy bedroom: the curly-toed, green-snouted Limbobo is to blame! But my favourite monster of all is the Broncus Dentus who lives just above the basin, making nests from the dental floss. My monster mayhem has great child-appeal and a confident female lead character. The fun is added too with a full page of activities and the availability of an app with a read-along function and even more games.
