Alphonse, There's Mud on the Ceiling!

By Daisy Hirst
Illustrated by Daisy Hirst

The third title featuring loveable monster sister and brother Natalie and Alphonse!

Natalie and Alphonse mostly like living in a flat on the seventh floor. They love playing drive the double-decker bed and doing roly-polies in the hall. But when the two monster siblings invent a game of wriggly worms in the jungle ... oh dear! “OW!” SHFLWUMP! That is not a good game for indoors! Will this adorably rambunctious pair ever manage to create a magical, wild camping experience in their little apartment? From the award-winning Daisy Hirst comes a story sure to inspire families to explore the great outdoors, before finding the perfect balance again back home.

  • Perfect for all those many children living in cities who don’t have a garden or the wild outdoors on their doorstep.
  • A playful, accessible picture book that addresses a common challenge in a pre-schooler's life and celebrates a creative, collaborative solution.
  • From the award-winning creator of Hilda and the Runaway Baby, Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do!, I Do Not Like Books Anymore! and The Girl with the Parrot on Her Head.
