Monster Max and the Bobble Hat of Forgetting by Robin Bennett & illustrated by Tom Tinn-Disbury (Blog Tour)

Monster Max and the Bobble Hat of Forgetting is the first in a brilliant new comedy adventure series for 7 to 9 year olds.

Nine year old Max looks like a normal boy on the outside but, on the inside, he’s anything but! Descended from a family of magical monsters, he has an amazing secret. One burp and he turns into a huge, lumbering monster. But watch out! All it takes is a simple sneeze to turn him back into a boy – often far from home and wearing only his pants! Throw in a magical bobble hat and the story gets even crazier!

After one too many nights of breaking things while monstering, he decides he needs to be more responsible and undertake a positive mission: to protect and do good stuff! It’s a noble mission which is made even harder when he meets his nemesis. Will his cover be blown and his family’s secret revealed or will Max be able to catch the true criminal?

This is a super fun, surprisingly relatable story with fast-paced chases, haphazard chaos and an incredibly likeable hero! Max tries to do his absolute best for everyone and demonstrates what a true hero should be like: brave, determined, strong and fighting for what is right. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Thank you to Firefly Press for this laugh-out-loud book!
