01: The Grerks
By Kes Gray
Every child loves monster stories, so the Nelly The Monster Sitter stories will have huge appeal for boys and girls of age 8 and above.
Ever played fetch with a four-eyed Grerk or made pancakes with a giant orange squurm? Nelly isn't scared of monsters. In fact she babysits for them. Every night, Nelly the monster sitter looks after a new friend, but its never easy...
Glug, the baby Grerk, has four eyes instead of two, two tongues instead of one and six legs instead of two...so giving him a bath is going to be six times the challenge.
