Looking after your first monster ISBN: 9780590550727
Published by Hippo, 1992
Written in the style of a pet manual, this extraordinarily clever and funny book will help a child make friends with his own particular monster. It seems that three sorts of monster can be found: the Wild Monster, the Imaginary Monster, and the Domestic Monster. We have sections on choosing your monster, feeding and grooming it, hygiene, exercise and training, and hints on keeping your monster happy. We also learn how to take it on outings, and - most importantly - that it will like best to sleep under your bed. The wonderfully comic pictures are a joy. If your child can make a pet of a monster, fear should turn to fun. It's certainly worth a try.....
