More About the Author

I originally trained as an engineer - which is rather unusual for a children's author - and spent many years working for companies making and using plastics, in England, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and, more recently, Spain. I used to make notes for stories when I was sitting in boring meetings, or travelling on trains and planes. The first things I had published were poems - you might come across some of them in poetry collections for children. Here's one of my favourites:

Yeti

I claim with confidence, I've met
Most creatures in the alphabet.
I've hunted them with noose or net,
From aardvark, ape and avocet,
Through musk-ox, moose and marmoset,
To xiphias and zebra, yet
It is to my intense regret
I haven't seen a Yeti ... yet.

I've trekked by mule with my machete,
Getting chilly, mucky, sweaty,
And, though you may call it petty,
Still I've never found a Yeti.

I've searched regions dry and wet.
I've scoured the plateau of Tibet.
I've studied Yeti etiquette,
Seen things I think a Yeti's ate,
And though I'm not the sort to fret,
I'm really getting quite upset
That I've not seen or smelt or met
Or found or caught a Yeti ... yet!

(First published in 'A Poetry Teacher's Toolkit - Book 2', published by David Fulton, 2002)

My first picture book, Under the Bed, was published in 2003. The second book, Quiet! was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award - in the end it didn't win the award, but I did get a Blue Peter badge and was on the telly for about 5 seconds! I now have about 15 picture books published. I only write the words - if I drew the pictures nobody would buy them - but I get to work with some wonderful illustrators. I really love the illustrations by Ed Eaves in my latest book, 'Sam's Super Stinky Socks!'. You can find more details of my books and poems, together with a lot of fun activities, on my website www.paulbright.co.uk .

Happy Reading!

Paul Bright

A fabulous book all about the monsters who live under the bed (well - you always KNEW they were there didn't you). These monsters are a great variety of greedy, sleepy and just plain cowardly. By the end of the book they have all run away scared out of their wits by the frightening creature IN the bed. Fabulous for helping little children deal with the "monster under the bed" fear.

My daughters (aged 4 and 3) love this book. After reading it a few times they know it off by heart and now tell me the story. It's a bedtime favourite and I would recommend it to parents everywhere. It's a book that they never seem to tire of.

Format: Paperback
We were lent this book when my three-year-old started having "monster" nightmares. The monsters in this book are funny and decidedly non-threatening, and by the end of the book they have all run away! It really helped my daughter get over her nightmare stage, and it is still a favourite, so much so that now we have to return it to it's owner I am buying one for her! She knows it off by heart and will recite it any time and any place. What's more, I still enjoy reading it, after 6 months! Highly recommended!

My little boy had read this at preschool and was desperate to have a copy at home. It's now a regular bedtime read - great fun and beautifully illustrated. We also enjoy Poo is that you Bertie by the same author - both great stories for pre schoolers.

Format: Hardcover
The flow of the words make it a very easy book to read to children. Children enjoy the poetry and are soon saying it with you. The plot is has its surprises and keeps the attention to the end.
