    Children aged 3+ will be in fits of giggles as they read along with the story of 'ten in a bed' but with an added monstrous twist. The ever-popular rhyme has been taken over by ten cute, if a little disgusting, monsters, and there's just not enough room in one bed for the whole lot of them. Colourful, hysterical and above all, noisy, every time one is pushed from the bed they make a very unique sound - from a snore to a scratch, a slurp to a burp, a sniff to a fart - these monsters make them all! Fun rhyming text and sound buttons to press make this a great read-aloud story that will delight children again and again. The bright and bold colours throughout make this a treat for the eyes and the ears!
