Mind Your Monsters by Catherine Bailey {Book Review}

 One day monsters invade Wally’s small town and chaos ensues!  
Vampires scare kids at the park
Zombies knock over lampposts
Werewolves chase the mail carrier
These loud and clumsy monsters are certainly hard to ignore!

When nothing else seems to work, Wally decides he must do something. But can one young boy save the town?

Mind Your Monsters by Catherine Bailey

Follow the story of Wally a young boy in a small town whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of monsters.  No matter how much he tried to ignore them, scare them, trick or treat them they wouldn’t go away – that was until he tried one last thing.

Mind Your Monsters - Will you please stop breaking our stuff

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Listening to the story Tigger happily pointed out all the different monsters as they appeared on the pages, he joined in with trying to get the monsters to go away.  In the end Wally manages to get the monsters to listen to him and hopefully it is a moral that Tigger will make note of and use should he ever find monsters getting in his way.

    When my daughter was little she had a few nightmares with a nasty monster, and came through to us sobbing. I told her to tell those monsters that mummy says to piss off. But to only say it to monsters because it’s very rude. I think that her laughing so much was what worked though, so I would maybe try reciting silly poems and jokes at them. Send them away giggling.

  43. Julie Ward

  80. November 8, 2015 / 5:47 pm

    I tell them that I would set my three dogs on them,the fact that they are probably the least frightening dogs in the world and would only lick them to death is neither here nor there x

  81. Susie Wilkinson
    November 8, 2015 / 11:07 pm

    I think they would just leave of their own accord when they found out what my town is like now! It was a sleepy market town, but now in just this year there’s been 4 attempted murders and 3 actual murders. I think they’d just run for their lives!

  119. Hayley Todd
    November 13, 2015 / 7:46 am

    I would be nice first of all and ask them to leave, if they wouldn’t leave, then tougher action would be called for and we would have to use superpowers to make them vanish!

  120. donna hale
