Grobblechops: a new take on monsters under the bed

Published on: 08 February 2019

Monsters are bad enough, but what about their parents? Elizabeth Laird's new book answers just that question.

Amir doesn’t want to go to bed. He’s afraid there might be a monster waiting in the dark. What if it has big teeth and growls like a lion? And even worse, what if the monster has a mum and dad too?

This hialrious take on the classic monster-under-the-bed tale is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations from Finnish illustrator Jenny Lucander.
