Beware of the Frog by William Bee

I found this book at the South Bank Book Market. I’m drawn to this market like a moth to a flame. Often I walk away empty handed, but every now and then I find a gem. I have a large collection of faded Penguin paperback classics on a shelf somewhere.

At some point this year I stumbled across this book by William Bee. I had seen it on a blog somewhere before, so I picked it up and flicked my way through it. I found the illustrations charming and funny. The text is beautiful and made me smile. I bought it immediately.

It’s one of those picture books I pull off the shelf regularly and it makes me smile each and every time. I’ve read it to children at school and it is always received well.

Apart from a slightly faded patch on the front cover, I found it in almost perfect condition. I think I like it more because of this as it comes with a memory attached to it, rather than a knock on the door followed by an impatient delivery man wedging it through it a small space while I attempt to reach the door. (Waving fist in the air)

Worst in Show by William Bee & Kate Hindley

Albert & Sidney, the boy & his pet monster.

Albert enters Sidney in a ‘Best Pet Monster Competition’. He is very optimistic, he thinks Sidney is a most excellent monster. However, the judges have a different idea about what makes a good monster. Sidney doesn’t quite cut it.

He’s not got any warts, he doesn’t have any parasites (just a couple of holiday makers, stopping by), he can’t fly and his farts just don’t smell that bad.

Albert finds this all very embarrassing. Until he realises that Sidney has many talents, they’re just not very monster like.
