Description

Shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Picture Book Award 2013!
Great fun with hilarious monsters and a message about working together
Vibrantly illustrated with masses to look out for on every page by the illustrator of Jasper Fforde's The Last Dragonslayer
Wonderful text to read aloud


When a boy and his Dad build an amazing monster-making machine, all sorts of monsters come tumbling out - big ones, small ones, funny ones and even ever-so-slightly scary ones. The monsters love to have fun and spend the days playing until they discover that other monsters live in an amazing land far away. Once again it is time to make an amazing machine, this time a flying one to take them to the land of the monsters.
