Me, My Brother and the Monster Meltdown - Rob Lloyd Jones
All the adults are freaking out. Giant monsters are smashing up supermarkets across the
country. The army can’t stop them and the prime minister is hiding in panic. A colossal six-
headed gingerbread man, a massive emoji poo, a gigantic bouncing bum… Top scientists
have no idea where they come from – or why they seem to hate supermarkets so much. But
nine-year-old Otis has an idea. The creatures are exactly the same as drawings by his five-
year-old brother, Jago: what if Jago brought his crazy creations to life with a magic pen? But
their parents won’t listen, so it’s up to Otis and his pals to sort this monster mess out!
Rob Lloyd Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed middle-grade novels Wild Boy and Wild Boy and the Black Terror, as well as the Jake Atlas adventure series.
Created with his sons, Otis (9) and Jago (5), during home-schooling, Me, My Brother and the Monster Meltdown is his first funny fiction for younger readers. In Rob’s words, “it celebrates the power of children’s imaginations and their strength in adversity and adventure…and a monster apocalypse.”
Rob lives in East Sussex with his wife, and monster-mad Otis and Jago.
