Welcome to Planet Pok - the land of Monsters’ Nonsense. It’s Pem Pem’s birthday but he’s lost his flying spaceship and the jumping jelly has escaped! Can his friends save the day?
Monsters' Nonsense is designed for children to practice decoding nonsense words within a fun and exciting story. The adult reads the main narrative whilst the child is encouraged to read the monsters' language in speech bubbles. These ‘non words' help them practice their emerging phonics skills at a level that is right for them.
Brought to life by award-winning author Peter Bently and Duncan Beedie's comic book style, each story stars one of the monsters cast in a leading role. This series creates a valuable shared reading experience and will inspire any child to become a monster reader!
