The Hairy Plug Monster by Leighroy Marsh

The Hairy Plug Monster by Leighroy Marsh and Samuel Perry

The Hairy Plug Monster is a wonderful rhyming book. The book is very much in the style of Dr Seuss and Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo) so fans of that style of writing will be very pleased with this book. 

The illustrations by Samuel Perry are in a 'slightly' dark gothic cartoon style - think Coraline, Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and you've hit the nail on the head. 

The story is about how a curious little girl makes friends with The Hairy Plug Monster and they have a late night escapade in the house while everyone else is fast asleep. 

DD5 really likes this book - particularly when the Hairy Plug Monster has a silly but posh voice ;) in fact, after reading 2 previous copies until the pages fall out and now buying another, I think its safe to say that The Hairy Plug Monster has to be DD5's favorite bed time book.

This wonderful book costs from £5.39 on Amazon and is a fantastic addition to any girl or boys bedtime library.

Enjoy, Angie x
