1001 Monster Things To Spot by Gilllian Doherty (Usborne, £7.99)
‘Octodoctors, Humdingers and Splendiferoos’ – these are just a few of the weird and wonderful monsters to be found in this tongue-twisting collection. My class loved this book for the wonderful word-play and counting opportunities. Several of them took it home to review properly – this book needs time and a willing listener to fully appreciate the variety of monsters available. Ben loved the variety of creatures, Nico liked looking more closely to spot and count everything on each page and Harry compared the book to the Where’s Wally series. This is one to read with a friend, rather than as a class. Hours of fun!
