'Nelly the Monster Sitter' by Kes Gray

Actress and comedian Sarah Hadland reads extracts from 'Nelly the Monster Sitter' by Kes Gray, as part of the 'Bringing Books to Life' series. She explains why she loves the book, how it captured her imagination, and why she loves to read.

Have you ever wondered why you don’t see monsters out and about? It’s because they are all stuck at home, unable to find babysitters. Nelly is a young girl who decides she wants to be a ‘monster babysitter’ until she puts an ad in the local paper and quickly realises she may have bitten off more than she can chew.
