The Awfully Bad Guide to Monster Housekeeping: Home & Recreation

This volume of the Awfully Bad Guide to Monster Housekeeping invites you deep into the dark heart of the monster home, as monsters share not only their terrible decorating secrets, but also the grisly games that keep them occupied in the witching hour.

Written by children from St John the Baptist and St Monica's Primary Schools, with help from poets Charlie Dark and Polarbear and illustrators Chris Wormell and Katie Cleminson, topics include: Decorating Disasters and Design Dangers, 12 Well-Loved Monster Games, and Modern Etiquette Rules as well as activities for the brave reader to try. Suitable for readers age 9+.
