What an amazing book to get little ones interested in learning the alphabet. The text is clear and bold and images are bright and colourful! This is a massive hit in my house!!

I Want to Be in a Scary Story
Author: Sean Taylor Illustrator: Jean Jullien
This book is sooooo much fun and my family loved every minute of it. The book reads as if you, the reader, are the narrator and Little Monster is talking to you. The Little Monster is very amusing. He wants to be in a scary story but it would seem he is scared of everything.
The images are bright and colourful - perfect book for this time of year!!

Dave the Lonely Monster
Author: Anna Kemp Illustrator: Sara Ogilvie
This is a really lovely book. It actually reminds me of something by Julia Donaldson, although it isn't written by her. In fact, it is written by Anna Kemp. I love that it is written in rhyme. The storyline is about how Dave,  who isn't a beast but a lonely monster, and is just looking for friendship. The book teaches us not to judge a book by its cover. 
The illustration are great and by Sara Ogilvie, who illustrated the Detective Dog, which is a book we love. Overall, big thumbs up from us!!

Happy Birthday, Boris!
Author: Sam Lloyd Illustrator: Sam Lloyd
Such an amazing book! It has a orange furry puppet in the middle of the book and you have to use the puppet to help Boris blow out the candles on his cake, open his presents and sing Happy Birthday. 
This book is well written and is very interactive. My family adore it!

Happy Hatchday
Author: Rob Biddulph
We love dino books in my household, and although this is a nice book, it is not our favourite. 
That said, the images are bright and colourful and the message of doing things at your own pace is a good one. Just felt the storyline lacked something.
