Monstrous beasts have feelings too!

This lively story of a lonely monster called Dave , who lives all alone in a retirement cave, is a lighthearted reminder that we should treat others as we would want to be treated ourselves - and that we could all do with a bit more monster in our lives!

Another classic-in-the-making all about kindness from the unbeatable duo of brilliant author Anna Kemp and Sara Ogilive , illustrator of The Detective Dog .

PRAISE FOR THE WORST PRINCESS:
`Those sick of the cult of pink princesses will appreciate this quirky take on the traditional princess tale... A very funny new picture book' The Bookseller Children's Buyers Guide
`Told in verse, and wonderfully illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, this picture book is so funny it could be safely recommended for all ages' The Independent on Sunday

PRAISE FOR DOGS DON'T DO BALLET:
`This heart-warming and humorous story will help children to realise that everyday, including themselves, can surprise with an unexpected talent' Read Me
`This is a parent and child read together, laugh together and have fun with picture, story and words sort of a book' School Librarian

PRAISE FOR RHINOS DON'T EAT PANCAKES:
`Offers a good-humoured warning to parents who don't listen... The massive, full-colour pictures make this a delicious book' The Independent on Sunday
`Anna Kemp's heart-warming story is told simply but with humour and emotion. And at the hands of Sara Ogilvie, all the characters are brought expressively to life.' The Scotsman
