This is a superb book for both child and adult. The book contains material that the child can relate to, and a stroy that you can't stop reading until the end. The children had fun guessing what kind of monster it was creating all the mystery.The pictures and words manage to bring the story to life, you almost feel like your right alongside Bomber smelling the stale cabbage. If you love a funny, clever plot with imaginary illustrations, then this is the book for you.
My 7yr old daughter is a really reluctant reader, capable but not confident, has completely loved this book and wants to read more of the same, it's a pity you can't buy banana books in a set, the fact that they have colour pictures and manageable amounts to read make it possible to keep a reluctant reader captivated and she's not even all that interested in dinosaurs! Well written and engaging and about a boy who lacks confidence at writing, as my daughter does at reading probably helped.
