My special gift for my special daughter: my first translated children’s book, Il Mio Amico Mostro – Boris alla Riscossa by Karen Kaz Campbell. It’s a funny story on a 8 year-old kid, Billy, who’s persecuted by terrible nightmares, and his friendly monster Boris, who helps him chase them away. It tells about self-awareness and self-esteem, about bullying and redemption written with lightness and humour. Your kids will love it!

This is an ideal first short chapter book for girls and boys aged from 5 to 9. It is funny and shows that the good guys win in the end. Your child will love this story.
Bobby has a special friend. Don’t tell anyone, but it is a monster! His name is Boris and he is red and furry with two golden horns. Boris helps Bobby when he has bad dreams.
In Book 1, Boris goes to school with Bobby. He doesn’t like the way Jack the Bully treats his friend Bobby. Jack doesn’t know that Boris is setting him up for embarrassment.
Book 2…Felix – the Naughty Monster! is out now.
About the author:
Kaz Campbell loves to tell a story. So where do all the ideas come from? Well to start off with, her husband – B. Campbell – is a very funny man. He wrote ‘Diary of an Almost Cool Girl’, an instant best seller. Mr TDH (Tall, Dark and Handsome) is one of the characters in his book. Kaz felt that he needed a voice too, how did he feel about Maddi, what was happening in his life…. And so Diary of Mr TDH was born.
