Don't Call Me Sweet!

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Little Monster revels in his sharp claws, spiky teeth and terrifying roar; he's often slimy and stinky and loves bug-eye stew. Don't ever pat him on the head. And don't ever, EVER, call him 'sweet'. Little Monster's mission is to terrify everyone he meets.

Or at least it is until he meets someone more monstrous than himself. Massive and mean, Ogre sweeps Little Monster up for a stinky teatime treat. Terrified, Little Monster denies everything. Stinky? Scary? Not him; he's the nicest monster you could meet. In fact, he's rather sweet....

The rhyming text bowls the story along, accompanied by illustrations veering between dark chaos and demure pastels to express visually Little Monster's inner contradictions. Great fun for small monsters wishing they were bigger!
