The Monstrous Me collection are split perspective books looking at situations from other points of view, helping children develop a sense of balance, roundedness and wellbeing. Readers can literally and figuratively, turn the story on its head, and look at the very same situations from different angles. In this book, ‘My Brother is a Monster/My Sister is a Monster’ two siblings are convinced the other is a monster. But, are they really? When we look at the story from the other side, we see a very different story.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This is the third book in the entertaining and educational Monstrous Me series. It explores how brothers and sisters see each other. It’s easy to read and understand. Bright, humorous illustrations make it appealing to young children too. The book explores everyday events where siblings may not understand each other, encouraging understanding of others behaviour and points of view. The final pages end with a positive message.

My Brother is a Monster. one book, two stories with humorous text and vivid and vibrant illustrations.

My Thoughts…

The second in the Monstrous Me series sees things from a man’s perspective. Daddy is happy to share the domestic duties and parenting, but his children don’t appreciate his efforts. Then you can flip the book over and see how the kids see their daddy. This book helps children to see things from both sides, appreciate that there is more than one way of seeing something.

Rhyming text and vivid fantasy illustrations engage children who love to use their imaginations. It’s a read that appeals to children and parents with multi-layered humourous situations familiar to parents.

My grandson loves these books because of the monsters, so he learns as he laughs.

My Mummy Is A Monster Natalie Reeves-Billing 5*#Review @BillingReeves #Illustrator Lisa Williams @RandomTTours #kidlit #ChildrensBooks #MonstrousMe #BlogTour #BookReview

The Monstrous Me series is a split perspective book looking at situations from another point of view to help children develop a sense of balance, roundedness and wellbeing. Readers can literally and figuratively, turn the story on its head, and look at the very same situations from different angles. In this first book, ‘My Mummy’s a Monster’ an inquisitive little girl is convinced her mum is a monster. But, is she really? When we look through her mummy’s eyes, we see a very different story.

My Thoughts...

This book teaches children to see things from someone else’s perspective. The rhyming text is easy to follow with situations familiar to both children and parents. Bright and comical illustrations complement the text perfectly.

The first book shows how the children think Mummy is a monster. The second shows the same story from Mummy’s side. It helps the children appreciate that everyone sees things differently, and every point of view is valid.
