Monster Party

by Alison Lester, Jane Godwin

Monster Party is an explosion of fun and pure joy. Children will love the hilarious, naughty desert monsters who come out of the ground to have a party on Dora Lake.

Eating chips and monster cake, they go ‘galumphing’ all over the place with a drum and a bass! Of all shapes and sizes, these monsters create havoc for the children at Rawa Community School who live on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert – ‘dancing and stomping’, ‘crashing and crunching’, ‘prowling and growling’, ‘happy and smiling’! Jeepers creepers! The monster cut-out illustrations created by the students are delightful. Monster Party will capture the hearts of the very young and the young at heart.

“Alison Lester and Jane Godwin have proven yet again that collaborating with children can help realise joyous storytelling and delightful illustrations…Monster Party is sure to find a well-loved home across age groups, from toddlers to primary-aged children. A useful jumping off point for group activities and classroom discussions – including interactive storytelling and learning about remote Indigenous communities – this is a picture book that belongs in schools, libraries and households alike.”
