Jeanne Willis, ill. Adrian Reynolds
Andersen Press
978-1842707289
September 2008


A big attention-grabbing title with Jeanne Willis's name underneath immediately put this picture book at the top of the waiting pile. The previous collaboration by this pair - Who's In The Loo? - won the Red House Picture Book Award and was overall winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award. I'd be surprised if this had the same success. I found it rather disappointing. The repetitive narrative is formulaic and the punch-page, when it comes, left me feeling short-changed. The Scary Monster illustrations are great though.
