„MONSTERS IN BERLIN“ is a book for children in which a band of merry monsters reveal the location of their favourite climbing frame and of the biggest ball in Berlin, what the Wall tastes like and why it’s not worth having a wash before going on the underground… 

Although children should beware of copying all the monsters‘ antics – unless they happen to be at least three metres tall and covered in hair – „MONSTERS IN BERLIN“ is the ideal book for inquisitive kids keen to discover Berlin.

Quirky photographs of the city, beautifully drawn monsters and short, funny text passages make it the perfect introduction to a fascinating place.

„What would the monsters get up to here?“ is all that needs to be asked to turn any trip to Berlin into a riotous outing for children and their grown-ups alike.
