What would you do if you received an invitation to run a zoo full of huge, scary monsters?
The brave little boy in this story leaps at the chance, and although the monsters seem scary at first, he soon has them eating out of the palm of his hand.

This is an exciting, imaginative, hilarious adventure that encourages little readers to have confidence and stand up for themselves, from the illustrator of Dogs Don't Do Ballet and Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Sparkes’ addictive rhyming text is brought to bright and colourful life by Ogilvie’s bold and painterly illustrations - Pam Norfolk, The Blackpool Gazette

This story certainly went down well with several groups of under fives who loved the tongue tingling rhyming text and crazy mock scary monsters - Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub

Amy Sparkes’ text is a lovely rhythmic verse that is sharp and to the point. The story could inspire some creative monster-designing, and the ‘stand up and assert yourself’ message is a nice surprise. The illustrations provided by the consistently brilliant Sara Ogilvie are great fun and each strange monster is beautifully imagined. Colours are loud and page space is used inventively. It’s a pretty perfect picture book and will be adored by little monsters and their keepers. - Books for Keeps

Riotous rhyming fun from the illustrator of Dogs Don't Do Ballet, with an inspiring message about overcoming challenges - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

“As good as Roald Dahl”

Aimed at medium sized kids (6ish?) but my 2 year old loves this, we both know it off by heart. It's great fun to read aloud
