A feisty little girl learns who the real monsters are in this brilliantly funny medieval adventure.
Once, there lived a little girl called Bo. Bo wanted to be just like her brothers and capture a fearsome monster. Bo is small, too small to catch a monster―or so her brothers say. But Bo isn’t one to take no for an answer, so she sets off on a quest to catch a monster of her own. Can she defeat the furious griffin, conquer the hideous kraken, and triumph over the monstrous dragon? Or has Bo got the wrong idea who the real monsters are?
Author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin, the creator of the New York Times Best Illustrated Little Red, employs her signature style in this original fairy tale with a clever twist. Readers are sure to fall in love with Woollvin’s newest vibrant and sassy protagonist.
Bo thought the creatures were monsters until she talked with them and interacted with them, learning more about their character. What does Bo’s example teach you about judging others?
Bo’s brothers told her she was to little to go out and catch monsters, but Bo braved her quest on her own and made a bunch of new friends. Are there things that seem hard to accomplish because you’re little? What are they, and how could you work towards those goals?
For my two littlest sisters, Lilac and Freya, the smartest, bravest, and strongest girls I know.
