It's years since he last changed his t-shirt. It's crusty and crawling with ants. His shoes are all slurpy and squelchy inside. And potatoes grow out of his pants. Morris is sweet, charming...and completely disgusting. Kids will absolutely LOVE him.

"Must be the most revolting picture book of the year! Morris the Mankiest Monster just gets worse and worse as you read aloud the rhyming text, snot, ear wax, pustules...it's really hard to keep going. This book needs a warning to parents - they're going to have to read it over and over again - children will absolutely love it" Bookseller "DISGUSTING! I am still feeling faintly queasy after reading this book, but my class, of course, absolutely loved it! ... The illustrations are wonderfully nauseating" Child Education Plus "This is not a tale for the faint-hearted, but children who enjoyed the bottom humour of Giles Andreae's Pants will doubtless love it" Junior "This is a great new picture book written by the ever so talented Giles Andreae and illustrated by Sarah McIntyre. It has fantastic rhyming text, and Morris gets more and more gross as the story develops...this is an amazing book for reading it out-loud which will have you little ones in stitches. You will have to read this over and over again, so be prepared!" Library Mice "More marvellous muckiness" -- Helen Brown Telegraph
