There’s a Monster in Your Book by Tom Fletcher is a book I stumbled across in Sainsbury’s this week, with some other Halloween themed books.
We do love Tom & Giovanna Fletcher and enjoy following them both on Instagram. They really are great parents to their 3 boys. But I haven’t read many of Tom’s children’s books.. at least not until now..
A mischievous monster has invaded the pages of your book!
Tom Fletcher’s warm, witty and perfectly-judged narrative voice brings this wonderfully inventive debut solo picture book to life, inviting readers to create magic inside the book.
Children will love interacting by tilting, spinning, shaking and blowing, and then seeing the impact as each page is turned. A fantastic celebration of all the fun that can be had with a book, with a wonderful wind-down bedtime ending!
From a career as a song-writer and global superstar with the band McFly, Tom Fletcher has gone on to become one of Britain’s best-loved children’s storytellers. (This synopsis is taken from the Waterstones website (here).
I have to say I absolutely love this book. It’s fun, interactive and something a little bit different. This book is aged at children aged between 2 and 5. I genuinely think it will really really appeal to children of this age and older children as well. It will most probably have them in fits of giggles.
With simple yet effective illustrations by Greg Abbott, the monster in this book is a sweet little thing, not too scary at all.
The story itself is quite short, which makes it the perfect bedtime story. However I have a feeling children may want to hear this story more than once.
Even though I read this book to myself first of all, I really enjoyed it, I followed the instructions and chuckled to myself. This is a book that everyone will love!
We’re a huge fan of this book, if you’re looking for a new story to read we’ve got the answer for you right here.
