Short Stories for Little Monsters

Marie-Louise Gay's Short Stories for Little Monsters is a collection of illustrated short stories for children.

Marie-Louise Gay

This hilarious collection of illustrated stories gives us a glimpse into the things children wonder about every day. What do cats really see? What do trees talk about? Should you make funny faces on a windy day? Do worms rule the world? Do mothers always tell the truth? Do snails have nightmares? These short stories are illustrated in vibrant watercolour and collage in cartoon style. They are rich in detail and tiny humorous subplots that will delight all little sharp-eyed monsters.
