The Anatomy of a Monster... Halloween!

Frankenstein © Nicola L Robinson 2014

It's that time of year again... Halloween is on it's way! To mark this spooky occasion I've written an article about monsters for the SCBWI's Words and Pictures blog, covering some thoughts about what makes a monster and some tips for drawing monsters too, if you're feeling a bit monstrous today do take a peek -

A monster picture book for Halloween... The Monster Machine!

The Monster Machine, a monster picture book

October is here and the monsters are really looking forward to Halloween again, they hope you have lots of monstrous things planned, like monster tricks and monster games, and they also hope that if you are looking for a monster picture book this halloween you might seek them out for a little monstrous read...

The Monster Machine is not a scary halloween book, there are lots of those out there for you to find, and all the witches, zombies and vampires you'll ever need (we love those too). The Monster Machine is a monster picture book about a small boy and his dad and their monster making machine, and it has lots and lots of monsters to look at.

An easy read and fun to read aloud at approximately 350 words, with lots of detail in the illustration to look at, a lovely monster picture book for little boys and little girls this halloween, great for ages 3 and up.

The Monster Machine is written by Nicola L Robinson and published by Pavilion Children's books.

Available to buy in your favourite book shop...

ISBN - 9781843652007
