Review: The Ultimate Survival Guide to Monsters Under the Bed

If you (or someone you know) is a little wary of monsters lurking beneath the bed, you need to get your hands on a copy of The Ultimate Survival Guide to Monsters Under the Bed.

Have you ever really given much thought to monster problems?

Completed any testing? Come up with any theories? 

Well lucky for you, now you don’t have to, because Goodnight Labs has done all the hard work for you. 

Goodnight Labs take monster problems very, very seriously, and they’ve come up with guaranteed steps to solve all your monster-under-the-bed problems.

There is a lot I really didn’t know about under-the-bed-monsters. For instance, did you know a clean room will keep them away? There’s simply nowhere for them to hide! They also don’t like minty fresh breath or crowds (hooray for soft toy sleepovers!). They’re afraid of hissing snake sounds, and some are even more scared of you than you are of them. 

This truly is the ultimate survival guide to under-the-bed monsters! With step-by-step instructions, hilarious jokes, a monster-keeper-away bonus and a handy poster (it’s the dust cover is disguise), you’ll be safe from monsters under the bed forever.

Debut author Mitch Frost brings comedy to a topic that sometimes makes knees knock in this fantastic and funny picture book. Packed with real strategies to extinguish night time fears, it’s a book that helps while it entertains. 

Daron Parton’s illustrations are funky and bold. Brilliantly bright colours fill every page and his monster creations are just divine. I want to collect toy versions of them all!

For a fun and entertaining lesson on how to deal with monsters, make sure you check out The Ultimate Survival Guide to Monsters Under the Bed.
