'My Mummy is a Monster, Limited Edition Flipbook' is the first in the 'Monstrous Me' collection. It is a split perspective book, which looks at life from alternate viewpoints.
This book is a labour of love, staying true to the author's vision for layout and format, and perfectly preserving the original magic.
We start the book looking through our mini heroine's eyes, as she recounts the ups and downs of family life. Brushing teeth and hair, endless shopping trips, each time highlighting the reasons she believes her mummy to be a monster. (There is even an opportunity to draw your own Mummy Monster!)
At the midpoint, we literally and figuratively turn the story on its head, by closing the book and flipping it. This brings an extra level of interactiveness.
Once flipped, this hilarious double-covered storybook becomes, 'My Children are Monsters.' Here, we step into our mummy's shoes and look at the same scenarios, this time, from mum's point of view.
The humour is multilayered and fun for all the family, with themes most families will instantly recognise.
It leaves us begging the question, 'Who is the real monster?'
