The MonstersONE MORNING IN 1977, JIM SLATER NOTICED ON THE WALL OF HIS KITCHEN FOUR UNUSUAL ILLUSTRATIONS OF MONSTERS DRAWN BY HIS TEN YEAR OLD SON CHRISTOPHER. ALL HIS CHILDREN LIKED THE PICTURES AND PERSUADED THEIR FATHER TO WRITE A STORY ABOUT ONE OF THEM. THAT DAY JIM SLATER WROTE THE TRICKY TROGGLE. A WEEK LATER CHRISTOPHER HAD PRODUCED COLOUR DRAWINGS AND THE FIRST A. MAZING MONSTER BOOK WAS BORN.

THE TRICKY TROGGLE WAS FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER FIFTEEN STORIES AND THE A. MAZING MONSTER BOOKS WENT ON TO BECOME BESTSELLERS WITH OVER THREE MILLION COPIES SOLD IN THE UK, USA AND JAPAN.

SINCE THE ORIGINAL BOOKS WENT OUT OF PRINT BOTH JIM AND CHRISTOPHER HAVE RECEIVED MANY REQUESTS FOR COPIES. THE BOOKS CONTINUE TO BE VERY POPULAR AND SECOND HAND COPIES HAVE BEEN IN GREAT DEMAND ON INTERNET BOOK SITES. 27 YEARS LATER JIM AND CHRISTOPHER DECIDED TO BRING BACK THE MONSTERS!

THE BOOKS HAVE BEEN REPRINTED ON HIGH QUALITY PAPER USING THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK. ALL SIXTEEN BOOKS CAN BE PURCHASED IN A SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION BOX SET AND MAKE AN IDEAL GIFT FOR A CHILD AGED BETWEEN 3 AND 10 YEARS.
