The 'Me!' Monsters

Cautionary Tales for Lovers of Squeam! Book 3

By Jamie Rix

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Funny, shocking, rude and anarchic stories, perfect for the 8+ market.

Grizzliness is out there. Every child has the makings of mischievousness, and can be lured into committing dastardly deeds. The six stories in each of the Grizzly Tales books show the rise and hard fall of vile and villainous children. We have completely reinvented Grizzly Tales for today's readers - ingenious concepts to link the separate stories, new design and illustrations, new accessible formats, but still capturing Jamie Rix's legendary brilliance for creating stories that linger in the mind long after the lights go out at night!

The third title in the all-new Grizzly Tales series captures the crimes of the 'ME!' monsters - those vain, selfish, greedy little children who want only the best for themselves, usually at the expense of everyone else. Hear the shrill explosion of breaking glass as all those mirrors shatter one by one!
