Monster and Chips

A great new children’s book was released this week by a very talented friend of mine. If you’re the parent of a child who enjoys monsters and laughs (and let’s be honest, most probably do), this book is certainly worth checking out.

Monster and Chips is the first in what is bound to be a popular series of books by David O’Connell, a London based illustrator and writer. The story centres around a young boy named Joe who gets a job working at Fuzzby’s diner, which is not just any old diner, this one is run by and frequented by monsters of all shapes and sizes.

Even at my age I found the book a fun read, so I’m sure the 7+ age range it’s aimed at will love it. The tales contain plenty of weird creatures, strange food, a good dollop of slapstick humour, and wonderful illustrations throughout, which really help bring the action to life.

The paperback is available to purchase from all good UK stockists, including Amazon, Waterstones and WHSmiths. And for tablet owners, there’s also a full-colour ebook available from Amazon Kindle Store, iBookstore and Google Play.
