Description

There's a sea monster under Sophie's bed. He's small and blue, and is also a terrible singer. Worst of all, it turns out that he's afraid to come out! Sophie decides to coax the shy monster out into the world, and when they share many adventures together, they both forget to be afraid. Michael Martchenko's bright, colourful and energetic artwork is the perfect complement to award-winning author Don Gillmor's tale. This wonderfully crafted and whimsical story touches on real childhood issues, and features a spunky heroine sure to become a favourite friend for young readers.

Sophie and the Sea Monster

Sophie finds a monster under the bed – who’s more afraid than she is! She coaxes him out, and sharing adventures together, they both forget their fears. Martchenko’s art is a perfect match.
