Your granny might find it shocking, but children everywhere will adore following the awful antics of this unashamedly revolting monster! As he guzzles garbage, burrows for bogies and plays hide-and-seek in the loo, there’s only one response to Icky Sticky Monster and that’s. “YUCK!”

What the Critics Said

“The short, snappy text and the size and boldness of the pop-ups make this a surefire choice for group sharing, but novice and reluctant readers will also enjoy tackling this on their own. This has obvious and wide appeal, and the kids who gravitate towards Shel Silverstein’s grosser poetic offerings will be particularly pleased by Icky’s actions.”

– The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A book just for little boys. It is all about disgusting monsters doing disgusting things! This bright, fun pop up style book will have him laughing as he discovers a monster playing hide and seek in the toilet, a monster offering to share his snot and even a monster looking for lunch in the rubbish bin! … When children are old enough to appreciate pop up books (and not just rip them) they really do add an extra element of fun to a story. Every page in Icky Sticky Monster has a brightly coloured background which suits the story perfectly … if you have a little monster in your life this would be a good Christmas pick! Girls will love it too!”

“Irresistible … Offering goofy, boldly colored cartoons, Lodge delights in the general grossness (the monster’s drink of choice is “stinky, wormy cabbage juice with added chunks of slug”). Her readers will, too.”
