Help I Smell A Monster by Justin Davies & Kim Geyer


From gorgons to selkies and hellhounds to dragons, Alice MacAlister is in for a surprise when she spends the summer holidays with her Uncle at his Jobs4Monsters recruitment agency.

As Alice is introduced to the quirky agency staff it’s not long before she finds herself on the trail of a missing Cyclops! With her new-found friends – Medusa and Miss Pinky – together they travel from the Queen’s retreat at Balmoral to Edinburgh’s murkiest shores to find their missing friend.

Will they escape the Kraken before it eats them for dinner?

Will Fergus the Poltergeist ever stop losing his skull?

And why is Alice the only one that can smell that awful stench?

Help! I Smell a Monster will have readers of all ages laughing with every page turn as Justin Davies‘ infectious humour is spread in huge nutty dollops throughout the book. Kim Geyer’s superb illustrations capture the monstrous mayhem perfectly for this fantastic debut – a harmonious collaboration celebrating the world of both writer and illustrator. With a sequel on the way in 2020, I can’t wait to read more about Alice and her monster friends!
