A note from the author

“I wrote Billy and the Mini Monsters with reluctant readers in mind (in particular my own two boys) in order to try and tempt them into reading. I set out to create funny, fast-paced stories made up of small, digestible chunks of text, alongside lots of colourful pictures, comic strips and diagrams. For this, we were lucky enough to find Melanie Williamson, who has filled the books with her laugh-out-loud illustrations.

I’m delighted that these titles were chosen for the Summer Reading Challenge and hope they inspire kids to keep reading and create their own Mini Monster characters and stories.”

Zanna Davidson, author of Billy and the Mini Monsters
