The Maker of Monsters

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Review

Brat lives in a castle, surrounded by water he is deathly afraid of. When he’s not being entertained by his friends Tingle and Sherman, he’s taking care of the dangerous monsters created by his master, who plans to eventually unleash them on the man who kidnapped his daughter.

But when the monsters escape, it’s up to Brat to face his fear; to warn the city across the sea of what’s coming and to save everyone before it’s too late.

This is a warm-hearted tale of searching for the hero within, overcoming self-doubt and finding people who believe in you.

With some terrifyingly monstrous creations chasing the story to its exciting conclusion, and a scatter of humour throughout from Brat’s best friends, this is a must-read for those who love adventure and nail-biting suspense.
