Buy Grobblechops

Book Trust have included Grobblechops in their fab list of ‘Books We Love’ for April! Read the amazing review below!

Amir doesn’t want to go to bed. He is scared of the dark and afraid there might be a monster under his bed; a monster called Grobblechops who has huge teeth and growls like a tiger.

Dad reassures Amir that if he growls louder, the monster will go away – but Amir can’t help catastrophising and worrying that Grobblechops’s mum and dad will join in the fight and eat him up. Luckily, Amir’s dad is a bit of an expert when it comes to monsters, and can rationalise and defuse all his son’s anxiety to the point where Grobblechops becomes a friend rather than a threat.

Stunning, collage-style illustrations reflect the quelling of Amir’s fears as Grobblechops and his parents subtly mutate from frightening to friendly.

A “monster-under-the-bed” story never fails to engage and entertain young children and this contemporary retelling, based on a classic tale by the poet Rumi, breathes new life into the genre for the next generation.
