Molly And The Bog Sprogs by Lee Thomas, illustrated by Raluca Farcas

Publication Date: 27 August 2020

The Blurb:

Even in a school full of monsters, Molly still feels out of place. No matter what she tries to do her ‘sister’ snakes are always getting in her way. Mischievous and uncontrollable, they scare away her friends and make everything she does so much more difficult.

The story of a young Gorgon who is annoyed at having to share her time with her s-s-sisters (her hair snakes). They keep thwarting her attempts to win the school talent contest until she devises a cunning plan…

The Review:

Step inside Monster School for a fun-filled lesson in perseverance, teamwork and sharing, all told in humorous verse.

Molly is determined to win the school talent contest, but her hair-snakes have other ideas. Every time she picks up her ukulele, they are far from helpful, destroying her chances each year. Only when she looks for the talents within, does she find the answer to what she should do was there all along.

Great fun to read aloud, Lee captures the frustrations that can lie within sibling relationships, in a fun anx quirky way. Raluca’s bright, bold illustrations grab the attention and allow the reader to delve deeper into the character’s emotions along the way.

Teamwork and sharing lie at the heart of this engaging story about sibling relationships, that is the first in an exciting series of books helping children deal with everyday problems through the exploits of these mini-monsters.
