Emma's monster ISBN: 9780744572292
Darke, Marjorie and McNicholas, Shelagh
Published by Walker, 1999
The monster in these stories is friendly and very real to Emma. She and her single-parent dad (who understands about monsters) live happily together, and the monster lives in a small hole in the skirting board behind her bed. The monster helps Emma through a visit to the dentist and her first day at playschool and shares other adventures in a series of short stories. What we actually see is a highly imaginative little girl, encouraged by her dad, who has made an imaginary friend out of her original fear. Lots of good black and white drawings. Great for reading aloud.
Age: 3+
