The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Publisher: Gecko Press
Monster is bored, as Mr and Mrs Mo are too busy to play with him. Impatient to have an adventure, Monster packs a bag with all the essentials - a torch, trumpet, skis, various bats and balls, a globe - and sets off to see the world.
As he marches along, unknowingly dropping the contents of his bag behind him, he grows weary. The journey isn't much fun on his own and his destination is much further than he thought.
Luckily, Mrs Mo comes to his aid. She picks up his scattered belongings, brings sandwiches and - most importantly - shares in the excitement of the expedition.
The vibrant illustrations are bursting with warmth and humour, in this exuberant tale of adventure and friendship.
