Kid’s Book Review: Ten Delicious Teachers

Kid’s Book Review: Ten Delicious Teachers

About the Book and Author

This glossy vibrant counting book about teachers getting eaten by monsters one-by-one is especially perfect for toddlers to enjoy during this back to school season. The story is written in a catchy rhyming verse by Ross Montgomery and the zany illustrations by Sarah Warburton are so detailed there is plenty for a young listener to pour over on every page. Our young reviewer and his mum love it. Thanks Walker Books 🙂

Ten silly teachers have missed the last bus home. But LOOK – a shortcut through the forest! They’ll be back in time for tea! Off they skip, unaware that in the woods a hungry horde of mischievous and hilariously goofy monsters is waiting…

My debut ALEX, THE DOG & THE UNOPENABLE DOOR (2013) was nominated for the Costa Children’s Book of the Year and the Branford Boase Award, and selected as one of The Sunday Times “Top 100 Modern Children’s Classics”.

The follow-up THE TORNADO CHASERS (2014) was chosen for the nationwide Booktrust BookBuzz scheme, and my third book PERIJEE & ME (2016) was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Award and won the Weald Book Award. THE MIDNIGHT GUARDIANS (2020) was selected as the Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month, and chosen as one of The Guardians Children’s Books of the Year.

Sarah Warburton has illustrated a lot of children’s books in a variety of different styles. You can visit her blog to find out more about her work and influences.

Book Review

I love to spot the hidden monster!

Dylan really loves the rhyming and flow in this book. We almost turn it into a song when reading it which is super fun for us both.

The illustrations are bold and beautiful and he loves to spot the hidden monster!

Dylan also found the ending funny when the monsters are being told off by the teacher.

It’s a book that toddlers can enjoy, but I think that it is also a great read for them to grow with – perhaps until they start nursery or even school!

We love it.
