Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs by CatchphraseDan
“Maggie stepped forward and rubbed her eyes in disbelief - how was this possible? A giant stone staircase stood in front of her, climbing high up through an ugly hole that had appeared in the ceiling. Maggie strained her eyes and looked for the end of the staircase, but it climbed and climbed into the darkness of the loft.”
When Maggie returns home from the market one spectacularly normal day, two things in particular strike her as strange.
• Firstly, a rather peculiar set of stairs have sprouted from her otherwise stairless bungalow.
• Secondly, and probably most concerning of all, her husband Nesbitt is nowhere to be found…
Where is Nesbitt? Why have these extraordinary stairs appeared - and more importantly, what lies beyond them? Evil? Good? Monsters? Head lice?!
Join Maggie as she searches low, high and even higher for Nesbitt, in an intriguing debut adventure that will captivate children and adults alike.
Love stairs? This story is for you!
Hate stairs? It’s for you as well!
Don’t care either way? Me neither - have yourself a read!
Written by CatchphraseDan and bursting with over 50 enchanting illustrations by the mystical Berg Norcross, Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs will dunk you deep into a barrel of mystery and then wring you dry like a limp blue flannel. Sit yourself down and open your mind hole, because this story is coming at you…
Let's see...is Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs a typical children's fairytale? Nope.
Is that a good thing? Oh yes!
This was such a delightful book! I found it to be a hoot! Yep, I said a hoot! Seriously though, it was a funny book and to be perfectly honest, it's not just a children's book! I'm certainly not a child but I loved it! This would be a great book to read aloud with your kids because you certainly wouldn't be bored while reading it!
I really enjoyed Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs! Thanks Catchphrase Dan!
