Ten silly teachers have missed the last bus home. But LOOK – a shortcut through the forest! They’ll be back in time for tea! Off they skip, unaware that in the woods a hungry horde of mischievous and hilariously goofy monsters is waiting… An irreverent and zany counting book that is gently thrilling with witty and whimsical illustrations.

Review by Stacey

Ten Delicious Teachers is the tale of ten rather silly teachers. First, they miss their bus home, then they decide to cut through the woods to get home, one that has a ‘monster’ warning before it.

In the teachers go and one by one the monsters pick them off on their travels until just one teacher is left, but what will happen to her?

I love Ross Montgomery’s book ‘The Midnight Guardians‘ which I reviewed last year and so when I heard that he had a new picture book out for younger children I knew it was going to be full of adventure and very amusing.

The story is told in rhyme and is complimented by bright, colourful, full-page illustrations. There is more text than in your average picture book, so young children who are just learning to read will need help to read it.

The contents I was expecting some big reveal at the end to show that the monsters hadn’t really eaten the teacher, but unfortunately, this isn’t the case, they really do, which I am sure children will find very amusing whilst some adults will be alarmed – but hey this is a book for kids and they will love the idea of a group of teachers being eaten.

It isn’t a scary book though. The monsters are all colourful and fluffy and you don’t actually see the teachers being eaten. Ten Delicious Teachers is a book that will give children a good giggle and keep them interested the whole way through.

Author Info

Ross Montgomery Ten Delicious Teachers

Ross Montgomery has worked as a pig farmer, a postman and a primary school teacher, so writing books was the next logical step. He spent his childhood reading everything he could get his hands on, from Jacqueline Wilson to Beano annuals, and it taught him pretty much everything that’s worth knowing.

If you looked through his pockets you’d find empty crisp packets, lists of things to do, and a bottle of that stuff you put on your nails to stop you biting them. He lives in London with his girlfriend, a cat called Fun Bobby, and a cactus on every available surface.
