A monster has invaded the pages of this original and super-fun bedtime picture book!
Children need to read aloud and follow the interactive instructions to help free the pesky monster by tilting, spinning and shaking their book.
When Max puts on his wolf suit and makes mischief, his mother calls him a "wild thing" and sends him to bed without any supper. Alone in his room and furious, Max sets sail across the sea to the place where the wild things are. The wild things roar their terrible roar and gnash their terrible teeth and roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws. How Max tames them, is made their king and joins in the rumpus before returning home to his bedroom – complete with a comforting bowl of supper that is still hot – is brilliantly told in Sendak's classic illustrations.
Greg Heffley is a normal American child, albeit one with a habit of getting into (and out of) trouble. His diary, complete with hilarious cartoons, records a year in his life and follows his relationships with his nerdy best friend Rowley, annoying brothers Roderick and Manny and long-suffering parents.
Greg is constantly trying to boost his popularity but his attempts at bodybuilding, cartooning and money-making - all recounted in the same deadpan tone - inevitably fall flat.
This laugh-out-loud book was a New York Times bestseller and has had enormous success with children on both sides of the Atlantic.
Tom is sure that even Matron’s warped tyranny and the general misery of the Lord Funt Hospital (surely very top of any NHS ‘improvement needed list’) is preferable to the torments he endures at his horrible posh school, and he’s even more determined to stay on the wards when he comes across the Midnight Gang, who secretly roam the hospital corridors at night making dreams come true!
