TURNED DOWN by 15 editors, REFUSED by 10 publishers, 12 years before anyone was brave enough to publish it?until now.
David Fickling Books is delighted to be publishing the most DISGUSTING book ever written, MORRIS THE MANKIEST MONSTER!
It?s years since he last changed his t-shirt
It?s crusty and crawling with ants
His shoes are all slurpy and squelchy inside
And potatoes grow out of his pants
Morris is sweet, charming... and completely disgusting! Kids will absolutely LOVE him. Brilliant rhyming text by Giles Andreae, that's perfect for reading out loud and stunning illustrations by Sarah McIntyre, a new and hugely talented addition to the DFB list.
??must be the most revolting picture book of the year! Morris the Mankiest Monster just gets
worse and worse as you read aloud the rhyming text, snot, ear wax, pustules?it?s really hard to
keep going. This book needs a warning to parents ? they?re going to have to read it over and over
again ? children will absolutely love it.?
