Ten little monsters set off in search of adventure. But what will the ten little monsters do when they meet a howling werewolf, a giant spider and other scaries in the night? A monster stomp of a book with lots of things to spot and count on every page, this noisy rhyming story from the creators of the bestselling Ten Little Pirates is perfect for sharing again and again - at Halloween, or indeed at any time of the year! Praise for Ten Little Pirates : 'A rollicking read with an easy rhythm and jaunty illustrations . . . an excellent addition to books that help with counting.'
Guardian 'Ties together its counting lessons and bobbing rhymes with intricate neatness . . . Lots of humorous details to discover on every page.'
Time Out

Angels & Urchins 'This book is wonderful.'

My daughter is a big fan of the 10 Little books.  Before buying this book, we already had the dinosaur and pirate version and she asks for them to be read to her regularly.  After each reading she also generally sits on her own with book, turning the pages and ‘reading’ it to herself again.  We picked up 10 Little Monsters as a seasonal treat, running up to Halloween.  She loves it just as much as the others in the series.  She spends a long time looking at the book on her own and saying words related to the pictures (“squawk” whenever she sees the raven) but also enjoys it being read to her and joins in with the “boo!”

Charlie loves this book. He really enjoyed learning what the different monsters were and counting them as we went. He points out different things each time we read it and has started telling the story back to me. He wants to collect the series of books

A very nice Halloween and Counting book. The little monsters aren't scary and the illustrations are really good. Very good to get us in the Halloween mood. My son loved reading this over and over and wanting to know what each monster was. He also loved counting how many monsters were left on each page, then recognizing the numbers and seeing how we count down from 10 to 1. Even with the monsters disappearing one by one, they all get together for a party at the end and my son would always get excited with this part.

Took my daughter into the waterstones yesterday and she was instantly attracted to the cover of this book, she studied the front cover for ages pointing out all the monsters on the front, there was no way we were leaving the shop without it. 
In 24 hours I've read this book around 20 times. The book is illustrated brilliantly. All the little vampires, ghosts and zombies are cute yet scary enough for a 2 year old! The book rhymes giving it a nice flow and makes it easy for any toddler to memorise!! The story takes you down through the numbers10-1. My daughter loves the last page where all the monsters come together for a big Halloween party. This book is excellent for encouraging counting, my daughter enjoyed finding and counting the various 'creatures' on each page. I think this book will be a favourite for a while!

Ten Little Monsters are ready to go trick or treaters but one by one they keep disappearing! Where are they all going to?

This is a really good counting and rhyming book. My four year old twins always ask to read it at bedtime and love to join in with the rhymes and counting the monsters. The illustrations are great - very funny, with lots of detail and not at all scary. Highly recommended.

We love the 10 little series of books, fabulous rhyming and rhythmic stories, which encourage kids to join in and help with learning to count. This one didn't disappoint, we love the monsters!
