Tamara Small and the Monster's Ball
Publisher: Maverick Arts Publishing
It’s a dark night and Tamara Small is whisked away from her bed by a hairy monster. But her initial fear soon disappears when she realises she’s simply been invited to the Monsters’ Ball, to meet a whole host of weird and wonderful creatures. The goblins and ghouls turn out to be unexpectedly friendly, and there’s time to breakdance with a werewolf and sample a cake made of green slime before the witches’ magic spell sends Tamara safely back to bed.
This lively picture book has eye-catching cartoon-style illustrations and a cheerful rhyming text. The reassuring story and cuddly monster characters make this an ideal book for helping young readers to overcome fears of things that go bump in the night.
