This is a great story for pre-school/reception children. It uses a repetitive style which children love and gradually builds the tension as the characters go further and further into the castle in search of the monster, in a similar style to the ever popular bear hunt story. At the end there is a mad dash for home which the children find exciting.
This book was also great as part of our 'Castles' project as it introduces some castle related vocabulary such as 'drawbridge' and'dungeon'.

Everyone says there's a monster living in the castle but is that true? The suspense builds as three children, a horse and a dog get closer and closer. First they come to the moat, then to the drawbridge. The children are feeling brave as it appears that no one is here today. At the well, they are even more convinced that the monster is no longer around as it is overgrown. Keep reading as they adventure further into the castle. What will they find on the other side of the locked door?! Are you ready to run?

If you have ever read the book, "We're going on a Bear Hunt", another favourite in this house, then you will recognize the same kind of storyline in this book. Well-written and beautifully illustrated.
