    Book review:

    This book is aimed at 8-12 year olds. Although it’s a children’s book, it was a fun little read. The book is about a little girl who moves into a bigger house and discovers the Monster Burrufu living in the attic. There are a few twists in the story which really help to keep any child engaged and also has a very unexpected ending.

    It’s a very heart warming read and the accompanying illustrations by Alessandra Sorrentino are just fantastic! I would recommend “My Monster Burrufu” to anyone who has their own children or is a fan of collecting children’s books.

    You can buy the book online here.
