About the Author
Aged 21 Robin was all set to become a cavalry officer; aged 21 and a half, he found himself working as an assistant gravedigger in south London wondering where it all went wrong. Robin has gone on to start and run over a dozen successful businesses from dog- sitting to cigars, tuition to translation. The list is quite exhausting. Robin is married with three young children. He spends his time between Pau in the Pyrenées and Henley-on- Thames.
Monster Max and the Bobble Hat of Forgetting is Robin’s first book with Firefly Press publishing in February 2021. He has also written other books for children, published with Monster Books.
Rampaging Rugby, first in the Stupendous Sports non-fiction series for 7-11-year-olds will publish August 2021.
First book in the hilarious Monster Max series
Max is an unusual 9-year-old. He can turn himself into a huge, bin- eating monster by BURPING. Being a monster is brilliant, unless he sneezes (which turns him back) and he finds himself far from home in just his pants.
Max decides to be more responsible and ‘protect and do good stuff’, starting with catching a local vandal. But his nemesis, Peregrine, is convinced Max is the vandal, and invents his POOP (Portable Operating Omni Prison) machine to trap him. If Peregrine can prove the truth, Max and his mother could be put in a zoo … or worse. Max will have to use his wits as well as his strength to catch the real culprit, before Peregrine can catch him…
Max is like any ordinary child and has a cat called Frankenstein and attends St. Cuthbert’s Primary School. Maybe, not just any ordinary child… with a burp, he will turn into a monster, until he sneezes and he turns back into a human boy. As a monster, he is out to do some good in stopping some bad guys from stealing ever again.
Moving onwards, children will discover this is just no ordinary family, with their tales of a king, a snake, sprites and much more. Within the humour is magical adventure and a nemesis.
The way the book is written has much comedy value that 7-9 year olds would most certainly appreciate. It’s all pitched very well at their level of humour, within the characters in what they say and do as well as many of their names.
It’s well illustrated throughout, that just adds to the humour.
With the P.A.N.T.S and P.O.O.P machine (each, clever acronyms) for what is used within a secret mission, children are sure to get much enjoyment out of that and in finding out if all will be well in the end, after some mild trepidation in the middle that will hold children’s attention and grip them further and yet still finding the comedy.
This is also a tale with a powerful message within it as it also illustrates how it is important to be yourself.
Don’t forget to read the epilogue. It’ll ready children for Book 2… it may just make them gasp and it may just fill them with intrigue as to what’s to come next!
