Monsters Love Underpants by Claire Freedman

EXCERPT: Monsters think it’s MONSTER fun
To creep around all scary!
But there’s something they love even more,
Than looking mean and hairy!

ABOUT ‘MONSTERS LOVE UNDERPANTS’: There are prowly monsters howling loudly and drooling monsters from the steamy swamp. There are wild, woolly mountain monsters and spiky, spooky monsters from outer space. And they all have one thing in common – they LOVE underpants!

LUKE AND SANDY’S THOUGHTS: What monsters love even more than looking mean and scary is ….. UNDERPANTS! And they have ever so many pairs of brightly coloured, striped, spotted and patterned underpants. One monster even wears an extra pair on his head!

As well as a fun rhyming story, there are plenty of learning opportunities – counting, colours, and working into the story that even though the monsters are all different, just like people are all different, they all live and play together.

Luke particularly loved the cat being scared by the monsters, and the pirate underpants. He also liked that there are bats and spiders and mice in some of the pictures.

Delightfully silly, bright and cheerful. I have lost count of the number of times we have read Monsters Love UNDERPANTS!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

THE AUTHOR: I’ve been a writer for over 15 years now, but it wasn’t planned!

I had a variety of jobs, including secretary, trainee buyer at Harrods, dental nurse, production assistant in a reprographic and printing company and various others.

I began to write after joining a creative writing class. I had no success with article writing, or short stories, or fiction, but the first children’s story I wrote, for a magazine called Twinkle, was accepted for publication. Hooray!!!

Things snowballed and a lot (yes lots and lots) of hard work later I now write full time and have over 50 books published. I still go to the same writing class and we have become a big happy family of writers!

For me, writing is the best job ever. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. I love to create worlds for young children to enjoy and escape into – whether the stories are educational, bedtime, problem solving or just plain good fun. It’s also very exciting to see the first picture roughs, as my wonderful, talented illustrators bring the text to life.

I live on the Essex coast in a lovely two-bed-roomed flat, which I share with my husband, Michael. At long last I have an office to write in, with room for all my books and bits of scribbled on papers.

The seafront is (still) just around the corner, and I find a bracing walk (it gets freezing when the East wind blows from the North Sea!) or gentle stroll when the weather is warmer, is great for clearing my head and mulling over story ideas

    1. He’s here for the weekend Shalini, and I have already lost count of the number of times we’ve read this. Last night after he’d gone to bed I heard him ‘reading’ it to his toys. 🤣😂❤📚
