A monstrously fun activity book, just in time for Halloween

My kids have always preferred “open-ended” coloring-and-activity books like Fotoplay! or Let’s Make Some Great Art over ones that ask them to just stay within the lines. So it’s no wonder they’re roaring for an imaginative new kids’ activity book that is monstrously fun…and just in time for writing spooky Halloween notes.

My Monster Bubblewriter Book by London illustrator and designer Linda Scott shows kids how to make letters with monstrous personality like that of the patchwork Sock Monster, Gooey Brain Monster, or the Super Furry Dude. Sound weird? Oh, yes, it’s weird, but really fun for kids who like to take an idea and run with it.

But it’s not only about making letters. In My Monster Bubblewriter Book, they’ll be asked to create their own monsters, as well as write their own stories starring their favorite not-so-scary creatures.

At 144 pages, it will keep your little monster occupied while they wait for the day of trick-or-treating to arrive. Then you may find your own scary creature come to life: the “I want more candy now” monster. –Christina

    Hi Liz. It is rated as appropriate for ages 6+, though I think it depends on your child. My son, who is 9, doesn’t love to write or doodle, so I think he’s still too young for this. But, a child who enjoys drawing and writing would have fun doing the activities. A six year old may need help reading some of the bubbly type though.
