A Monster Wrote Me a Letter


Product Description
Product Details


What if a monster wrote you a letter today, saying he was coming to your house to play? This is the awful predicament in which a young boy and girl find themselves in the opening of Nick Bland’s book. In fluid lines of rhythmic banter, the children discuss what will happen. Is he mean? Is he blue or is he green? Could he be polite? Or will he scratch and bite? Meanwhile, a poor unsuspecting monster receives a letter from the children confirming the dreaded rendezvous, which he realises was meant for someone else. Unable to refuse on both parts, the children and the monster undergo the kind of rigorous grooming and preparation equivalent to a blind date in the adult world. Bland skilfully manipulates his pencil in creating shades of white and grey in his illustrations. The dollop of colour on most pages arrests the eyes immediately, giving subtlety to the other details sketched in corners, ceilings, under mats and falling out of pockets. This book appeals on different levels. Depending on the reader’s penchant for words or images, the poetry is animated and engaging, while the pictures are amusing and true to the text. Erin O’Brien is the editorial assistant of AB&P C. 2005 Thorpe-Bowker and contributors
