Product description

The hilarious and much-loved tale of a boy whose busy parents never notice him. Whatever Bernard says to Mum and Dad, the answer’s always the same: “Not now, Bernard!” So how can he tell them that there’s a hungry monster in the garden? It’s gobbled up his dinner, it’s broken his toys – and now it wants to eat him up! Bursting with imagination and comedy, this classic story invests a familiar real-life scenario with an unforgettably surreal touch.

“Shows David McKee’s droll, deadpan humour at its very best.” Books for Keeps

“I’ve lost count the number of times I have read it, but it still makes me laugh out loud.” Primary Times
