In the media

Botboy seemed to really enjoy it and often asks for 'the ghost story'. Sackgirl likes to read it for him too, mimicking the various sound effects for the cat, cow, owl and others.
Talk About Cheesecake
This is a very appealing story and a delight to read out loud.
The Book Bag
Wake Up Do, Lydia Lou! is another lovely story which is very well written and beautifully illustrated and would make a perfect read for Monsters aged around the two to four years age mark.
