A fresh author / illustrator pairing here from Cicada Books. This is a great story, perfectly concluded by Bartholomew’s Dad calmly helping him to get properly ready for school.’ — It’s All About Stories

‘With pants and loo roll all over the endpapers, this book is bound to be a winner – and it’s possibly the perfect story for parents with children who just cannot get up in time for school.’ — School Reading List

Bartholomew struggles to get himself ready as the monsters from last night’s dreams sabotage the most simple of morning routines. A vast purple monster sits on his chest, making it hard to get up. A slug monster slimes his clothes, so he can’t get dressed. Brushing teeth, eating breakfast, and even going to the toilet all present challenges as the monsters mess around at Bartholomew’s expense. Will Bartholomew’s dad ever manage to get him out the door?

Hilarious illustrations bring Bartolomew’s frustration and befuddlement alive in this deceptively simple story that anyone who is not a morning person is bound to relate to.
