In a fantastical land where even warthogs are beautiful, the peace is shattered one day when a mouse hears the deafening thud of a monster. All the animals agree to approach the monster together, only to find they are in for a surprise. Illustrated in full colour.
Rezension: First there comes an Ugly Beast. Then there comes a Big Monster whose thudding footsteps disturb Basil the Bushbaby's rest. Something must be done! However, Basil's attempts to enlist his friends' help in getting rid of the menace fall on deaf ears--each of his friends has a very good reason why they are the wrong one to help. Finally a solution to the problem is found and the issue is resolved in a very satisfactory way.
This is a delightful picture book with illustrations and text in perfect harmony--as you would expect from Nick Butterworth, one of today's most popular author/illustrators. The text, full of repetition and simple words, is perfect for reading aloud--young audiences will be delighted to join in with the repeated "Thud! Thud! Thud!" of the monster's footprints. The colourful and wonderfully expressive illustrations, full of witty little touches are bound to keep readers coming back for another look. (Ages 3 to 7)

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
