Silly Name for a Monster is a new title from Scholastic’s ‘Get ready to read!’ series written by the fabulously funny Timothy Knapman (of Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates fame) and illustrated by our own comic hero Steve May. Once upon a time, heroes had to have proper sounding names. And big scary monsters had big scary names too but the monster in this tale doesn’t sound scary at all, his name is Tickly Wickly Poo Poo Beast! and our little hero Stinkpot wins his friendship and saves the kingdom.
Here’s a selection of the wonderfully expressive illustrations from the book, featuring the king, the royal hero, Poo Poo Beast and Stinkpot.
