Mo and the Monster


Written by Sue Murray, illustrated by Rozzy Hibbard

A story with an important lesson about not judging others (even monsters!) too quickly, and how kindness may just win the day.

Ideal for use with children in Years 1 and 2 (age 5-8). This book has been written to accompany the LanguageLift program, but can also be used independently. The explicit story and language elements will make it particularly helpful for those struggling with oral language.


With a fairytale-style imaginative theme, Mo and the Monster provides excellent consolidation of narrative story structure. It has a special focus on the story solution and consequence, with an unexpected ending. This book introduces new vocabulary (terrified) and provides an opportunity to revise vocabulary from previous storybooks in the LanguageLift series (such as puzzled, suddenly, gobbled). Less explicit text provides opportunities to work on inferencing skills. You can use this book to discuss:
  • Why someone may seem angry or mean
  • What we can do to help when someone is feeling upset
  • How we can learn from previous experiences
  • What makes this book like a fairy tale, and what kinds of lessons we learn from fairy tales
Children will love diving into the beautifully illustrated fairy tale world of Mo and his family and will enjoy how this story turns all expectations on their head. Published by Putto Press, an imprint of MultiLit Pty Ltd.
