Blue Misty Monsters
A friendly book this, and one which cleverly offers younger readers a different perspective on life. Earth is about to be visited by Misty Monsters when an accident results in one of them becoming separated from her family. She is forced to befriend a human, and the adventures begin. Throughout the reader is given the monster's viewpoint; humans are seen as 'unclever', ungainly, uncouth individuals. However, they are generously tolerated by the Misty Monsters which saves us from becoming totally alienated from ourselves as we read. Good cover and black and white illustrations. Another excellent read for Middle Juniors from a writer whose style and good humour are, in my experience, much enjoyed by this age group.
