Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do!

By Daisy Hirst
Illustrated by Daisy Hirst

Brother and sister monsters fall out and make up in spectacular style in this warm, witty story.

From the creator of The Girl with the Parrot on Her Head comes a truly authentic and original story about sibling rivalry. Natalie the monster mostly loves her little brother Alphonse being there – they name the pigeons, bounce things off the bunk beds, have stories in the chair and make lots of fun stuff together. But, when Natalie catches Alphonse eating her most favourite book, well … that is not OK! Daisy’s expressive, bold screen-print illustration and unique picture book voice will enchant and charm all readers.

  • The second title from Daisy Hirst, an extraordinary new picture book talent. Look out for her third title, Hilda and the Runaway Baby – publishing Spring 2017!
