Monster Max and the Marmalade Ghost by Robin Bennett & illustrated by Tom Tinn-Disbury

Monster Max is back in this laugh-out-loud, slightly gross sequel overflowing with sticky silliness! Always ready to fulfil his moto of “Protect and Do Good Stuff”, this crime-fighting, evil villain-busting boy who turns into a huge monster whenever he burps (and turns back again by sneezing) will stop at nothing to prevent a ghostly creature from messing with his life.

Max and Peregrine are volunteering at the local day home for the elderly when strange things start to happen. Can they solve the mystery and stop this gloopy ghost or will it prove too much for their friendship?

This is the perfect series for children who love to laugh and get lost in ridiculously silly fun. With large print, well-spaced text and super-engaging illustrations, even the most reluctant readers will be intrigued by this appealing treat.

Thank you to Firefly Press for this brilliant book!
