A super charming book that parents and grandparents will enjoy reading time and time again with their little ones … 14 December 2017
I read this book with my six-year-old grandson. He loved that the rainbow monsters were called different colours and that the descriptions of them all rhymed, and they gave me lots of scope to have him chuckling at all the different granddad voices I put on with each new monster. On every page there are bright colourful illustrations which strike just the right balance between professionalism and the way a young child might draw themselves. As an extra treat and surprise, there’s lots more fun to be had with some super educational games and puzzles at the end.
Overall a delightfully charming book that parents and grandparents will enjoy reading over and over again with their own ‘little monsters, ideal for young children between say three or four up to about six or seven. Well worth the money, but the smiles and laughs it will bring your little ones is beyond price.
About the Author
Sylva Fae is a married mum of three from Lancashire, England. She grew up in a rambling old farmhouse bordering onto the moors, with a slightly dysfunctional family and an adopted bunch of equally dysfunctional animals.
As a qualified lecturer and verifier, she has spent twenty years teaching literacy and numeracy to adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. Sylva owns a wood where she and her husband run survival courses and woodland craft days.
She escapes to the woods at every possible opportunity to enjoy the peace and fresh air. Her husband busies himself making fire and chopping logs while she takes the girls off on adventures in their own enchanted woodland, hunting for fairies and stomping in muddy puddles.
Adventures in the woods inspired her to write stories to entertain her three girls. Now she hopes to publish some of these stories. Sylva writes a blog, Sylvanian Ramblings and has a short story published in the IASD anthology in aid of MacMillan Cancer ‘You’re Not Alone: An Indie Author Anthology.’ She has several rhyming stories aimed at four to six year olds, ready for illustration, is in the process of writing three books for early readers and a woodland activities book for parents. I’m also proud to say Sylva Fae is a member and Admin of the IASD Indie Author Support and Discussion fb group and its associated blog/website at: https://indieauthorsupportanddiscussion.com/
When not writing or chasing three muddy girls through the woods, Sylva likes to geek out on cryptology puzzles and ciphers. She has won the US Navy cryptology challenge two years running.
