This gorgeously designed, interactive picture book is a fun shared experience that puts the child in charge of the story.

It's story time, but this book has bad news as soon as it realises there are monsters in it, it's too scared to tell you the rest of the story!

Can you help it feel better?

It needs you to rub away its goosebumps, blow away the giant butterflies in its tummy, and fan away the yucky smell the monsters have left behind.

A fun and quirky interactive story, with distinctive and stylish illustrations from an innovative young illustrator and muralist.
