We're Going to Find the Monster!
Superstar duo Malorie Blackman and Dapo Adeola unite for a rhythmic, rip-roaring adventure, following two intrepid siblings as they traverse oceans, mountains, jungles and a bubbly bubble lake in their quest to find a mysterious monster.
This daring adventure is scaffolded by a cumulative repeated refrain of "We're going to find the monster!", and readers will encounter a wide range of habitats that in turn celebrate the imaginations of young children - a wooden staircase becomes a "huge, high mountain" in the minds of Charlie and Eddie. Adeola's vibrant illustrations are wonderfully relatable - from the upside-down saucepan worn as an adventurer's helmet, to the authentic depiction of the skin condition vitiligo, rarely seen in children's books.
This story was originally published as Marty Monster in 1999, also by Blackman.
