Step inside a world of monster fun and encourage children to sound out nonwords, carefully selected at the right level to support phonic development.
Welcome to Planet Pok - the land of Monsters' Nonsense. Pem Pem's bossy cousin has come to visit, but he's not interested in the tour of Planet Pok. What will happen when Huff Huff discovers an underground tunnel? Step inside a world of monster fun and encourage children to sound out non-words, carefully selected at the right level to support phonic development. Monsters Nonsense is designed for children to practice decoding nonsense words within a fun and exciting story. The adult reads the main narrative whilst the child is encouraged to read the monsters language in speech bubbles and these ‘non-words' help them practise their emerging phonics skills at a level that is right for them. Brought to life by award-winning author Peter Bently and Duncan Beedies comic book style, this fun series creates a valuable shared reading experience and will inspire any child to become a monster reader!
Peter Bently is married with two children, and lives in south England. He studied languages at Oxford University and has written over 40 titles, one of which led to him being awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.Duncan Beedie is an illustrator and animator based in Bristol. Aside from drawing copious quirky images, he collects clockwork robots, can identify pretty much any military aircraft and has a dog called Ivor.
