But First I Caught a Monster, Hardback Book

But First I Caught a Monster Hardback


Every parent knows the drill: tuck in; well, okay, one story then, but short... and so it starts. This is a short story. Why short?You need to go to sleep. The story is about you. You went to sleep. End of story. Yes, but first I caught a monster. A monster?Just watch. A boy keeps outsmarting his father who wants to finish the story.

But in the end, the father doesn't want to stop narrating either.

This picture book is not just for reading. It is also a wonderful read-together book: the interaction between the hurried adult and the child, who pushes him to continue storytelling, will bring much joy. Kees deBoer brings a boy's fantasy to life in a fun and unique way: monsters, soldiers, more monsters... Tjibbe Veldkamp wrote a story that continues forever.

An ode to the imagination and the magical power of stories: the ideal book for every child that can never get enough of bedtime stories!
