  5. Paper cuts
  6. You hate origin stories
  7. 7 is your favourite number, but there's only 3 books so this is the closest you can get to your one true love
  8. You only needed one book to stop your table from wobbling
  9. The other books don't have enough monsters
  10. You're a potato and the book stores don't have underground shipping (airmail is for the birds)

FAQ

What age range is this book for?
If you like bright colours, this book is great! That covers 6 year olds. But if you're more into the plot, up to about 12 is the "this book is aimed at me" age. Then there's the "I love this universe!" people and that covers all the rest of the ages. Which one are you?
It looks interesting, but do I need to buy the other books for this to make sense?
There's a little bit that you might be missing out on, but there's a handy prologue at the beginning to explain things without giving too much away. It definitely can stand on its own.
What if I can't read yet?
Then I could presumably write any answer here and it would seem to be really useful and detailed but in actuality it's just a pudding recipe. But how would you know, you can't read yet!

Can you sign my copy?
If you can find me at a book signing, yes!

Will you be writing stories in this universe for older kids?
That would be awesome. We'll have to wait and see!
