Books about monsters can be useful tools for parents while delighting children. These aren't just books about silly and sometimes scary monsters they are about fear and conquering it.

Today I am really chuffed to welcome Niamh Sharkey to Library Mice for a Fabulous Five feature on monsters! We have always been big fans of Niamh's at home and own many of her books: Tales from Old Ireland and Cinderella are amongst our all-time favourites, and Santasaurus, which is still one of our regular reads at Christmas time.
