This is Morris, star of the most disgusting picture book we have ever published, MORRIS THE MANKIEST MONSTER:
And this is Sarah, the talented illustrator of MORRIS, reading the text aloud at Edinburgh Festival: http://bit.ly/bkzpQu
Written by Giles Andreae, the brilliantly repulsive rhyming text was rejected by five different editors before DFB dared to take it on. Needless to say, children love it! Out now in hardback, and coming later this month in paperback, the surprise ending will definitely make you squirm…
“…must be the most revolting picture book of the year!…This book needs a warning to parents – they’re going to have to read it over and over again – children will absolutely love it.” The Bookseller
“Treading the tightrope between revolting and sweet is hard but Morris does it. What a gem!” Books for Keeps
