On top of a mountain not very far from here lived a Big Scary Monster. This monster was bigger and scarier than any other creature – and he knew it. But one day, he went for a walk down the mountain...
"This is a beautiful and charming book, children will love the way the story builds, perfect for story telling and excitement as the monster comes down the mountain. Highly recommended." Hotbrandscoolplaces.com
"Bold colours for a bold monster that frightens all the smaller creatures. When he descends from his mountain, he finds he is not as huge as he thought and experiences fear himself. Naturally, on his return, he is a changed monster and he and his little neighbours become friends. Lots of animals to look at and a chance to shout Boo!" Carousel Christmas 2009 Supplement
"A cautionary tale, humorously told and beautifully illustrated with plenty of scope for noisy participation from young readers." Book Trust Best Book Guide 2010
