Babette Cole, whose books portray a quirky and hilarious view of life, turns her attention to the area of behaviour in this superbly illustrated and very funny story. The wonderfully named Lucretzia Crum is a little monster with very bad habits. Wherever she goes she leaves behind a trail of destruction and misery as she steals from babies, refuses to eat and pulls the other girls' hair. No one knows how to deal with her until, finally, her parents come up with a cunning plan--to introduce her to some real monsters.
Babette Cole's simple text and wonderfully expressive illustrations combine to create a hilarious book which will be enjoyed by all ages, including adults. (Ages 0 to 5 years.) --Philippa ReeceAbout the Author:
