ILLUSTRATED BY BERG NORCROSS
Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs is an illustrated adventure story for all ages. CatchphraseDan collaborated with the tremendous Norwegian painter Berg Norcross for this story, who has packed the book full to the brim with over 50 illustrations, and they look fancier than a chicken in a raincoat. An honest review will help to spread the word about the book, and get more people reading instead of shoplifting tubs of delicious strawberry ice-cream!
A DIFFERENT KIND OF READ REVIEW
This bedtime, daytime, nap time story starts off as a common folktale about a fisherman and his wife. Or is it about the wife and her fisherman husband. Let me see now, the book is entitled Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs. Oh yeah, it’s about the wife. Anybody can see that. So what exactly happens in this story. I’m not sure, I’ve never dealt with evil stairs. But, your children, will be able to tell you everything that’s going on, and they might even read it to you. Especially if they can read it themselves. There so many twist and turns in this story that will keep them entertained for hours and hours. But, BE WARNED! If you’re reading it to them, just as they are falling to sleep, one of those twists will pop up bringing them back to full awakeness, dang! (awakeness, um I think I just made up a word). A little advice read the section you plan to cover before you read to your child. That way, you’ll know when to stop.
The UNIQUE thing about Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs is… Let me see, where do I start? Hmm, the title? The villain is a staircase? The explanations? The twists? My, my there are so many. You decide.
