The biggest Slovenian publisher Mladinska knjiga has acquired Tuutikki Tolonen’s wild middle-grade fantasy Monster Nanny alongside its sequel Monster Route. Mladinska’s list includes children’s classics from Astrid Lindgren and Roald Dahl to contemporary authors like Dav Pilkey. The beloved Monster Nanny duology is now sold in 14 territories!
“Monster Nanny is a warm and engaging story, written with humour and wit. Children will love the oddness of the strange nannies and enjoy the thrill in uncovering the mystery that surrounds them.” — Alenka Veler, editor, Mladinska knjiga
A blend of Where the Wild Things Are and Mary Poppins, Monster Nanny tells the story of a contemporary family whose daily routines are turned upside-down when a hairy, swamp-smelling creature said to be specializing in childcare shows up at their doorstep.
