The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Don’t Make Me Cross
There’s just one thing you need to know about Little Monster – he has 'to be the boss!' Despite claiming to be smiley, small and sweet, Little Monster turns out to be terribly rude, cross and greedy. His birthday party quickly descends into chaos when he doesn’t get his own way and he ends up feeling rather sorry for himself and looking very silly in front of his friends.
Little Monster learns that sharing is much more fun and he vows never to be grumpy again…but will he keep his promise?
This fun follow-up to Don’t Call Me Sweet is a bouncy rhyme that is easy to read. This time, Little Monster is claiming to be sweet, but is proving to be anything but.
Children will love the naughty monster snatching all the presents and hogging all the sweets, and parents will delight in reminding them not to be like Little Monster if they don’t want to end up feeling silly. The illustrations are very cute with the pastel coloured monsters enjoying their yucky monster party food and a cheeky ending that will have everyone giggling.
