The Monster Diaries
Written by Luciano Sarancino
Illustrated by Poly Bernatene
Published by Meadowside Children's Books
Like a gorgeously illustrated love letter to all those fabulous Universal Studios monsters I loved to bits as a kid, we have truly enjoyed "The Monster Diaries". Laid out, as you'd expect, like a series of diary entries, find out what stresses a Mummy out during the average day or how long a wolfman takes to brush their hair by the light of a silvery moon.
What does Dracula buy on visits to the supermarket?
And how on earth does Frankenstein's Monster cope with those yearly tune-up and bolt-tightening sessions?
All these questions and more are answered in "The Monster Diaries" - Just don't have nightmares!
Charlotte's best bit: Amusingly grossed out by the fact that Dracula drinks tomato juice (er, Charlotte, you do know what else vampires usually drink don't you?)
Daddy's Favourite bit: Brilliant diary entries, superbly funny and Poly Bernatene's art is always brilliant in everything he does so this is a huge winner of a book for us!
