A sad little monster sits alone, unloved and unloving until visited by the fair princess, looking for someone to share her jelly beans. First he learns to smile, then to laugh.

His dark house fills with light and friendship. A delightful fantasy illustrated with stunningly original pictures in glowing colours.

      Comments about The Sad Little Monster and the Jelly Bean Queen:

      I remember this book from childhood and I bought it for my 2yo and 1yo daughters for Xmas. Explores themes including sharing, friendship and the power of the smile. My youngest loves the pictures and my toddler adores the story. A great bedtime read that we enjoy together several times a week.
