Bobby has a problem at school. It's his teacher, Miss Kirby. She stomps, she roars, and she won't even let him throw paper aeroplanes in class... what a monster! One day the unthinkable happens when Bobby bumps into Miss Kirby outside school. However, he soon finds out there's more to her than meets the eye.

This beautifully illustrated and brilliantly funny book from award-winning artist Peter Brown shows that monsters, and teachers, are not always as bad as they seem.
