Themes: Good manners/ Patience/ Teamwork
I crunch, munch and chew because that’s what monsters do shouts the monster without even a hello as he barges his way into Mrs Mo’s house. But the monster has met his match in Mrs Mo who very subtly begins to turn his behavior around without him even noticing it. The monster is endearingly ugly. Mrs Mo, a model of old-fashioned good manners and patience. Together they become a team. This is Paul Beavis’s first picture book and he currently works as a website designer. I feel sure we will hear and see more of him.
The book will be launched here in Wellington in April.
