My Teacher is a Monster!
by Peter Brown 1408005869_978144725747901

Monsters – and teachers – are not always what they seem!

Bobby has a problem at school. It’s his teacher, Miss Kirby. She stomps, she roars, and she won’t even let him throw paper aeroplanes in class… what a monster! One day the unthinkable happens when Bobby bumps into Miss Kirby outside school. However, he soon finds out there’s more to her than meets the eye.

This beautifully illustrated and brilliantly funny book from award-winning artist Peter Brown shows that monsters – and teachers – are not always as bad as they seem.

London. Present Day. Girls are disappearing. And strange creatures are on the streets.

When Lily is attacked by a two-headed dog, she’s saved by hot, tattooed and not-quite-human Regan. As Guardian of the Gates it’s his job to protect both halves of the City, new and old, from a world of restless creatures that threaten its very existence.

As the City spins out of control, Lily and Regan race to find the girls, discover the truth and expose a terrible conspiracy.
