What kind of monster is lurking under your bed? Grobblechops is one of those monsters that just becomes more frightening by the minute.
An old tale by Rumi, a 13th century poet and Sufi mystic, which is given a new take by award-winning author, Elizabeth Laird.
Grobblechops looms large in each of the stunning illustrations from Jenny Lucander, it is spiky and brown, with teeth as large as you can imagine and eyes that keep on staring at you.
'But what....' asks Amir at every answer given by his parents to his worried and questions. ' But what if my monster's got a Dad too?'
Eventually, Amir is persuaded that his monster might just like to play. And so he does and so does the monster's mother and father and life can calm down once again.
Brilliantly told tale and Elizabeth Laird has an amazing way of making the words on each page just right for the images.
Or maybe it's the skill of illustrator Jenny Lucander to create the pictures that fit so amazingly well with the words? Either way publishers Tiny Owl have another excellent book to add to their collection.
