Get to know a lovable, lonely, rock n' roll monster called Dave: win this picture book and signed print

Dave the Lonely Monster is a hilarious picture book about grown-ups wanting – and needing – to have JUST as much fun as the children...

A monster called Dave is banished to a 'retirement cave' after he causes too much of a ruckus. He now lives out his days in a gentle fashion – taking baths, reading monster mysteries, and cracking on with his knitting.

Then along comes Percival the Brave, determined to defeat 'the fiendish monster'. It's not the best of starts – but could they ever be friends?

This picture book, written by Anna Kemp, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie and published by Simon & Schuster, is heartwarming AND hilarious. In fact, read our whole review to see just how much we loved it...

We guarantee that you and your little ones will be dancing and having your own monster rave by the end.

Want to win a copy of the book AND a signed illustrative print (see the picture above)? Enter our competition and keep your fingers crossed!
