I Can Catch a Monster
A little rebel girl goes on the hunt for a fearsome monster in this empowering tale about bravery and kindness from the creator of the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Little Red, Bethan Woollvin.
Meet Bo the Brave. She’s smart, she’s strong and she is definitely in charge.
Bo’s brothers say she is too little to catch a monster. But Bo has other ideas, so she sets off on a quest to catch a beast of her own. Can she defeat the furious griffin, conquer the hideous kraken and triumph over the monstrous dragon?
Or if not, can she make friends with them?
I Can Catch a Monster is a sassy and vibrant picture book with amazing shaped flaps and a message about not judging by appearance and standing up for yourself and your friends from the Macmillan Prize-winning creator of Little Red, Rapunzel and Hansel and Gretel, Bethan Woollvin.
I just ADORE Bethan Woollvin’s fairytale series soooo much… Bethan has created a totally new fairytale character for modern kids and she has done it with her characteristic wit. I’ll defy you to find many illustrators as talented at bringing to life characters in such few paint strokes — Kim * Bookbairn * Woollvin’s bold, daring and fiercely comical story conveys important messages about not judging by appearance and standing up for yourself and your friends. The perfect book to empower your daughters! * Blackpool Gazette * Bethan was once asked to describe her books in three words – she chose ‘bold, dark and sneaky’ *- this is most definitely all of those but also delightful and endearing – do read it! * Love Reading 4 Kids * Bethan Woollvin’s picture books are instantly recognisable and her strong, graphic, Moomin-influenced illustrations are beautifully engaging and quirky. […] An empowering read for all small heroes, and a lovely reminder that most of us, even monsters, are actually quite nice * BookTrust * A fierce, inquisitive heroine, a cast of mythical beasts and Woollvin’s distinctive art makes this a rich treat * Bookseller *
