In The Classroom


Our book Melvin The Friendly Bedtime Monster is ideal for Learning and Literacy Tables in schools (even up to 1st class), preschools and creches. The story is presented in rhyme, and features vibrant, playful scenes as well as subtly teaching grammatical connotations like alliteration, noun-spotting and more. We will gladly offer a bulk discount on quantities ordered. Please contact us for more information.
