I’m a little monster, I am smiley, small and sweet,
With gorgeous little monster eyes and furry monster feet.
There’s just one thing that you should know .
I have to be the boss. And if you don’t remember .
I’ll get very VERY CROSS!

 

It’s Little Monster’s birthday and his friends are coming to his party. But it’s not much fun playing party games with someone who always has to win . or having birthday tea with someone who wants ALL the food for himself. It’s time this grumpy, grouchy Monster learned how to behave!

 

With funny rhyming text and delightful illustrations, this is the perfect picture book for little monsters everywhere.

Timothy Limpet feels out of place in his troll family. He likes things to be just so, and most trolls, frankly, don’t. Tabitha Lumpit likes things to be loud, loopy, and messy, and she feels like a fish out of water in her very neat family. Sometimes they wonder if their families really see them for who they are. So Timothy and Tabitha swap places . . . with hilarious and touching results.
