Grotty Hollow monsters
are loud and tough,
and love to rumble.
But not Sasha.
Sasha is different –
and she likes it that way.

“… a wonderful easy read tale about having the courage to be yourself. Part of the Aussie Nibbles series, the text is complemented by delightful black and white illustrations, by Stephen Michael King, on every spread. A fun read with a gentle, but important, message.” www.aussiereviews.com

“When Sue Whiting steers the tale, happy endings do happen even when you are different. The secret is staying true to yourself. Hiding beneath deceptively simple sentence structure lies a story of hope that echoes for all ages. A Strange Little Monster will be a timeless tale of hope for years to come.” Jo Burnell, The Reading Stack
