Renowned author Eoin McLaughlin and award-nominated illustrator Rob Starling join forces to create a hilarious, not-so-spooky tale

This book is NOT a bedtime story.

It's scary, strange and rather gory.

Bedtime stories make you sleepy.

This book won't. It's much too CREEPY.

Except it isn't... this book is told by a group of monsters who think they're very scary, but in fact they're not - they're cute and cuddly. They try their hardest to scare you - in a haunted house, creepy wood, ghostly ship and darkest dark, but each time they fail The problem is, these monsters aren't at all spooky. They're a bit silly, actually. And a bit cuddly. In fact, they share the insecurities and worries of us humans and all they want is a cosy, snoozy good night's sleep.

Despite the title of this book it really is a bedtime story. A brilliant tale that reassures children, makes them laugh and gets them ready for a peaceful night's sleep.

He wants to write stories that make children wet themselves with laughter. Eoin lives in London.Rob Starling began doodling at school and hasn't stopped since. He lives and works in Norwich, and when he's not sketching up new characters or writing down stories he can be found sculpting, brewing coffee or foraging in the kitchen for cake.
