Paper Monsters is a hands- on collage studio for young children. Budding artists can create seven collage pictures of monsters in cleverly designed paper pockets in the book. Complete all the pictures to make a monster procession hurrying to the last page, where young readers discover the monsters at monster school with a final collage to complete.

The book has step- by- step instructions showing how to make the collages but the collage- making activity is open and free. Each spread features an inspirational collage illustration of a monster and paper pocket with a window cut to the same monster shape. Children can tear and paste the decorated papers included in an envelope at the back of the book, along with any scraps of recycled newspapers and magazines, to make a collage on the piece of card. Slot the piece of collage card into the pocket so it shows through the monster- shaped window, and voila! A wonderful collage monster.

Oscar Sabini’s artwork is charming and characterful, inspiring young children to be creative and experiment with form and color.

Oscar Sabini is an Italian illustrator who also organizes and teaches creative and educational workshops for children and adults. He is the author and illustrator of Paper Zoo.
