Il Mio Amico Mostro – Libro 1 – Boris Alla Riscossa by Kaz Campbell


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!

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.

Kaz taught for many years and has two teenage children, so she knows how kids tick.Her latest series, My Monster, is written for children aged from 4 to 10. It is a short chapter book about an 8 year-old boy called Bobby who has really bad nightmares. His mother buys him a dream-catcher and guess what comes out of the dream-catcher? A cute red monster called Boris. Boris helps Bobby with his dreams, but he also goes to school with Bobby and can’t resist paying back Jack (the class bully) for all the mean things he does. This is a funny book that young kids absolutely love.So far two books are available. My Monster, Book 1 – Boris to the Rescue and My Monster, Book 2 – Felix…The Naughty Monster. More are on the way!Kaz lives on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Australia with her husband and two “almost cool” teenage kids. Everyone in her family loves to surf and enjoy the outdoors.
