In the second title featuring favourite monster siblings, Natalie and Alphonse, Natalie is learning to read. "Now I can read all the stories in the world," she says. "And you can read them to me!" adds little brother Alphonse. But when Natalie tries to read all by herself for the first time, the letters look like squiggles, and she isn't so sure any more. With her unique humour and bold, brilliant art, Daisy Hirst celebrates the joy of sharing stories, and perfectly evokes those feelings of frustration and pride that come with learning something new.
