Parragon Books was established in the late 1980s and they have gone from strength to strength; now they have more than just books in their range – they have gifts, stationary and activity books too. For the latest Book Buddy Review we were sent the ‘Big Book of Monster Fun’ to take a look at! So, you know them times when you want to buy the kids something and you are not sure whether to get a story book, an activity book or a colouring book. Well this is your answer because it is all three! This is literally the big book of fun, there are over 180 pages of stories, colouring at activities!There are two sections to the book, the first half is filled with Monster Related stuff and the second is full of Dinosaurs. Both sections have a story, colouring pages and lots of activities. The activities range from drawing missing bits of a picture to counting the items on a page. There is even a mini game in there to play. It is surprising how many things to do are in the book!
It is a lovely big book and really is stuffed full of fun, my two are both really creative and love reading so it seems like a perfect option to buy. Some of the activities are a little young for Monkey at 7 but the stories (especially the Dinosaur one with it’s comic book design) still attract him, so it is a book that Monkey and Mouse can share!
The only real question about the book is where would you start – activity or story?!
