    I like the way the font is different colours to show when the monster is talking purple as the little monster is purple and when the narrator is talking I also like that some of the words are in capitals for emphasis Lovely pictures

    I liked the comical value of this book and I could see it going down a treat in KS1 in particular The indecisive, light hearted plot is pulled off well The unconventional narrator character dialogue was one that I feel would be appreciatedby KS1 As books go it kind of reminded me of The three pigs by David Wiesner where the characters take the plot into their own hands just a little less trippy.

    Sean Taylor brings us a quirky story that definitely makes us look at picture books in another way Through a conversational writing style between author narrator and the monster we get to hear all about this little monster s desire to be part of a scary story The monster is set on not being part of a funny story yet the way Taylor creates the scary story for the monster he is creating a funny story for us This book breaks conventions in a subtle way and even the monster enjoys it, so much so Sean Taylor brings us a quirky story that definitely makes us look at picture books in another way Through a conversational writing style between author narrator and the monster we get to hear all about this little monster s desire to be part of a scary story The monster is set on not being part of a funny story yet the way Taylor creates the scary story for the monster he is creating a funny story for us This book breaks conventions in a subtle way and even the monster enjoys it, so much so that at the end he wants to be in another story The illustrations are really effective in this book support this idea of constructing a story very well When the monster is expressing his desire to be in a story and the author is telling him what it would entail, the pages are white with no pictures other than the monster Yet when putting the story together, the illustrations become full page bleeds which gives the impression that the monster is jumping in and out of his own story and taking us with him at the same time Alongside this, the monster has speech bubbles whilst in his story as though he is reacting to the scene he s been put into which is where the humour aspect comes in and is then woven throughout the book in the same way

    This picture book breaks the fourth wall in that by the end of the story the character of the monster seems to control the story towards the end, almost in a dialogue with the reader It is a fun story particularly for KS1 children This could also help children understand the use and purpose of speech and speech bubbles in writing as well as the use of exclamations and postmodern strategies which they could use in their own writing and storytelling.

    The character in this book wants to be in a scary story There is lots of dialogue between the young character who wants to be in a scary story and the person who is writing the story The young character also controls what happens in the story by voicing their opinion of what they want to do and has elements of the forth wall This technique is not used very often in books and it is a great book The book also has fantastic illustrations which are very appealing and colourful.
