who needs friends when you've got monsters?

nelson stumbles across a machine, invented by christopher wren and buried for hundreds of years. designed to extract the 7 deadly sins, the machine had a fault – once extracted, the sins became living, breathing monsters who would then follow the sinner around for eternity (unless they ate him first, in the case of the particularly sinful).

nelson accidentally extracts 7 deadly monsters from his own little soul. ugly, cantankerous, smelly and often the cause of much embarrassment, nelson's monsters are the last thing he needed in his life, but at least they're fairly harmless. when he learns of their individual powers he realises the monsters can be put to good use, and together nelson and the deadly 7 set out on a quest across the globe to find and rescue his big sister. 

the deadly 7 is a monster adventure by garth jennings and is packed full of hilarious illustrations.
