Day-dreaming Daisy McCloud...is the wondrous story of a little girl who has her head in the clouds. She is always in trouble for day-dreaming in class and that means there are dark clouds on the horizon. One day, she looks out of her classroom window to see clouds in the shape of a giant skull - and that begins a scary adventure which ultimately teaches her an important lesson. The skull-cloud floats down and wraps Daisy’s school in a fog. From that moment on, all the lessons are monstrous: The art class is taught by the ghost of Vincent Van Gough, who’s cut off his ear; the cookery class is taught by witches making “shockolate sponge” and “scary cakes”; the headmaster’s skeleton makes a startling appearance in biology; and the maths teacher saws himself in half to demonstrate fractions. That’s not all. There is even a PE lesson with a monstrous football match, featuring players such as Georgie Beast, Frank Lumpard, Chopper Harris, Nobbly Stiles and – controversially ­- a vampire striker who bears an uncanny resemblance to Luis Suarez. This is the sixth book in the fantastic Monstrous Morals series which is aimed at scaring primary school children out of their bad habits. The books are fun, educational and rapidly becoming collectors’ items. Daydreaming Daisy McCloud follows the popular Fartin’ Martin Sidebottom, Black-toothed Ruth Black, Nose-picking Nicholas Pickering, Fidgety Bridget Wrigglesworth, and Messy Bessie Clutterbuck. Daydreaming Daisy McCloud is the perfect book for parents with children who are always getting told off for day-dreaming in class. If you haven’t got the foggiest idea what to do about it, leave it to the Monstrous Morals.

Is your child a breezy-buttocked bottom-burper? A frightful figure of flatulence? A truly terrible trumper? A pungent pumper par excellence? Does the apple of your eye make more noise than the biggest jumbo jet on take-off and emit more methane than a large herd of elephants on a strictly vegetarian diet? Do you find it happening at embarrassing moments, like when you're standing in the supermarket queue or ordering a meal in a nice restaurant? Do you find youself frequently having to open windows or move into another room? Do you have to pretend that an embarrassing noise has come from your shoe scuffing on the floor, the squeaking of a leather chair, or the call of a wild bird passing overhead? Are you forced to suggest that the lingering smell is the result of a mysterious substance local farmers are using to fertilise their nearby land? If any of this strikes a chord and you are able to admit to yourself that you have a child who farts, then you have taken the courageous first step. The second step is to read this book about Fartin' Martin Sidebottom, a boy who can't stop breaking wind. Martin endures a terrifying adventure when he joins a wind orchestra conducted by the devil and ends up in the eye of a hurricane. It is the first book in the Monstrous Morals series - a fun and educational way for parents to get important messages across about the nasty habits that children pick up. Written in comical rhymes, designed to appeal to both children and parents, the Monstrous Morals aim to make sure those habits aren't carried into adulthood. We begin our adventures with Fartin Martin Sidebottom – a tale that is bound to put the wind up any flatulent child...

Is your child the type who can’t keep still in class? Are they always in trouble for wriggling and squirming? If that’s the case, you have our deepest sympathy but help is on the way from the Monstrous Morals team. Fidgety Bridget Wrigglesworth is a story about a little girl whose fidgeting drives everyone mad and she is told by her Great Aunt Rose that she has ants in her pants. That sets the scene for a night-time visit by The Anthill Mob – giant ants which emerge from Bridget’s bedroom drawer and take her to work as a slave in an ant-hill. The Queen Ant, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Great Aunt Rose, is extremely pompous and demanding and Bridget is so exhausted she no longer fidgets. Then she makes friends with two little ants who are so much nicer than all the others. They have strange accents and look strangely familiar. One is called Ant and the other is called Dick. (It was going to be Ant and Dec but we decided not to play it legally safe!) As in all the Monstrous Morals stories, there is a lovely, happy ending, with Bridget finding her way home and learning her lesson.

Is your child the sort who can’t stop putting their fingers up their nose? Do they go ferreting around for a juicy bogey at the most embarrassing moments? Do they flick them at other people? Are you just sick of their nose-picking naughtiness? The Monstrous Morals team aim to put a stop to this appalling habit through the adventures of Nose-Picking Nicholas Pickering. Nicholas is one of those boys who picks his nose for England. He can’t stop. He’s obsessed. One day, his finger goes up his nose and his followed by the rest of his body. Nicholas ends up in the slimy green cavern of his own nasty nasal passages and has a terrifying confrontation with – you’ve guessed it – The Bogeyman. Believe us, you don’t want to pick a fight with The Bogeyman. He’s a child-eating, slobbery, burping, farting monster and he’s not to be messed with. Luckily, Nicholas escapes on a giant sneeze in the nick of time and ends up back home, having learned an important lesson. It’s another engaging story in the Monstrous Morals series, aimed at helping parents scare their kids out of bad habits. If you’re looking for a book for your nose-picking child – pick this one!
