The story is about two friends, Bella and Monty. Bella is fearless, but Monty is scared of LOTS of things, including 'cheese on toast', 'gloves', 'plugholes' (hee hee!) and THE DARK. When they have a sleepover, Bella tries to help Monty conquer his fears using lovely imaginative explanations about the things he's scared of and they go on an dreamy adventure to a dark forest, via space - and a school for ghouls! Eventually Monty realises that actually, when you think about it, these things aren't scary at all. A great story for any child that has night-time fears.
Alex's wonderful illustrations bring the story to life, and the book is filled with humour. From the list of Monty's fears, to the silly zombies and the cute spiders with their chinese takeaway boxes, there's something to make you smile on every page!
A fun book for a confident reader, and a joy for any adult to read to their child. Go and buy it now! :)
