Don't Call me Sweet by Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Angela Rozelaar (Bloomsbury Press)

Don't Call Me Sweet

Written by Smriti Prasadam-Halls

Illustrated by Angela Rozelaar

Published by Bloomsbury Press

There's no such thing as a cute monster, a sweet monster. At least that's what the central character in "Don't Call Me Sweet" would have you believe, but I'm afraid to say that we thought the little monster fellah was extremely sweet with the sort of face that little old lady monsters just want to tweak and plant a big sloppy kiss on.

Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Angela Rozelaar's fantastic little book details how Little Monster wants to be taken a little more seriously. He has a scary roar, just listen! ROARRRR! He can stomp and growl and stalk with the best of them. But what happens when a bigger, badder more monstrous beast comes calling? Will Little Monster be brave enough to stand up to the biggest hungriest troll in the land?

A monster tale with a difference, packed with humour and fun.

Charlotte's best bit: The lovely wibbly old monster ladies. Mwah!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A neat and nifty monster tale of bravado and rumbling monster tums. Just make sure you don't end up in one, sweet or otherwise!
