Review

Sometimes, there’s just nothing a grown up can suggest that sounds like it might actually be a fun thing to do – especially when unseasonable weather is preventing expected outside play in the summer.

Luckily, as all wise parents (and practitioners) know, small people have practically limitless resources of their own given the right encouragement to make use of them; and that’s exactly what’s demonstrated in this funny story about a boy, a den he creates from cushions and bits of sofa, and a friendly monster who pops in for a visit just when things are starting to get a bit boring.

Loretta Schauer’s illustrations are bright, dynamic and full of details to discuss; while Timothy Knapman peppers the narrative with plenty of noisy and exciting exclamations that invite enthusiastic audience participation.

All in all, this is a great book to share with little ones claiming there’s ‘nothing to do’ – if they’re brave enough, perhaps they could build their own den and see if it attracts a monster, too?
