Monster Swap: Zainab and Mash

How would you like to visit a monster? And have a monster come to stay with you?

Once upon a time, humans were afraid of monsters, and monsters were afraid of humans. After all, seeing a giant purple two-headed monster dribbling mucus through the kitchen window would put any human off their cornflakes. And monsters were equally repulsed by the sight of tiny red-faced people screaming for ice cream! But then they decided they wanted to understand each other better. So they invented the Monster Swap – an exchange visit where kids and monsters stay in each other’s worlds!

Zainab is an ultra-keen skateboarder obsessed with midnight feasts. Mash is six feet tall with red laser beam eyes. Start glugging that Frothing Gloop Milkshake: this Monster Swap could turn out to be one INSANE adventure!
