Eva Whitebrook

In Eva Whitebrook’s poetic debut picture book we meet six different little monster children who each have their own personalities and distinct challenges. One is too quiet, one is too kind, yet another has no friends … 

In other words, they’re dealing with the same kinds of feelings and problems as most children (and adults). What they all have in common is their loneliness, and that they have to find their own strength to take their place in the world. A movingingly truthful book about everyone’s right to be themselves, We are Monster Children is written in verse and with a keen eye for human (and sometimes monstrous) struggles. The poems go straight in to your heart and will prompt important conversations between children and adults. Beautifully illustrated with lots of humour and empathy by Lotta Geffenblad.

“Wonderfully and colorfully illustrated and with rhymes that flow like water, Eva Whitebrook and Lotta Geffenblad tell about what it’s like to be different.”
