Fascinating or frightening, monsters are everywhere… but who are they, what do they look like, and what do they do?
Budding sleuths will love using the ‘magical detector’ tucked inside this intriguing, interactive book as they set out to comb forests, caves, mountains, castles, and fairy tales to discover the secrets of monsters and then hunt them down with a hand-held coloured lens.
Armed with the monster-revealing magic lens, young detectives must find some of their favourite characters from fiction, film, myth and legend which are all hidden on pages packed with quirky, vivid illustrations and the secret story of each fascinating and sometimes frightening creature.
Investigate haunted castles, spooky forests and outer space, and then find the favourite monsters just waiting to jump out when the magic lens is held over them. Mythological creatures, ghostly spirits and monsters from film and fiction all make an appearance and a brief, lively text reveals all their secrets, from their ghastly origins to their favourite meals. And if that wasn’t enough, children also get the chance to design their very own monster.
Written by Céline Potard and illustrated by Sophie Ledesma, Monsters comes from What on Earth, publisher of non-fiction books that engage children’s natural curiosity and passion for learning.
