There was a knock at the door and Posy was very worried and scared when she saw a monster. She was absolutely delighted when she realised who it was.

Huge fan of the Pip and Posy series - the stories of these two friends explore every day toddler/pre-schooler situations which provoke big emotions in little people ! We'll rattle through the whole collection.... and talk about how we would feel if we were Pip or Posy.

The Scary Monster was useful for us in looking at 1) things not always being as they seem, 2) discussion of "whats a monster", 3) exploring the idea of dressing up and pretending to be someone else, 4) taking turns. This is definitely Sophie's favourite Pip and Posy book..... we made a "scary monster suit" picture with lots of blue paint and made a flap so that the head could be lifted up to reveal Sophie's photo.... so the joke when we were reading the book was "was the monster Pip or Sophie.... look at those feet... are Sophie's feet hairy?" ;o)

A lovely book my boys thoroughly enjoy over and over again. Posy is busy cooking when a monster turns up at her door. She’s scared...until she notices the monster’s feet.
It has just the right amount of tension for young readers and beautiful illustrations. A big hit.

The Pip and Posy books are great for all ages. This story is about Pip dressing up as a monster and scaring Posy before sharing the costume and playing together. This series of books address a lot of different emotions that children may encounter and puts them into different situations that children may identify with.

My son absolutely loves this book ! The whole series is brilliant but this one in particular is his favorite, he loves tapping and knocking on the pages to show when the monster is tapping at the window and knocking at the door. He points to everything on each page for mummy to explain what it is..... These books have really helped him with learning different animals/objects.

This was the first Pip and Posy book we’ve read and it was such a delight. The story of Pip dressing up as a scary monster is engaging and the illustrations bright and beautiful. We’ll definitely be reading more Pip and Posy books.

My daughter likes having this book read to her and pointing out different things in the detailed pictures. The story is nice with a happy ending that the monster isn’t real but Posy’s friend Pip. This was the first Pip and Posy book we’ve come across but I will be looking out for more!
