Deb and Dot and the Mix-Up Plot: School of Monsters

Sally Rippin

Some kids play well and some do not … Some look the same, like Deb and Dot!

Deb and Dot are twins and complete opposites. Deb is friendly and everyone likes her - but Dot doesn’t quite know how to play nicely with the other monsters! Can Teacher Ted help the twins out with a plan?

Welcome to the School of Monsters: the funniest, silliest and most accessible series for first readers!

Start by reading only the last word on every line and work your way up to reading the whole story. With tumbling rhymes and an infectious sense of humour, the weird and wonderful students at the School of Monsters are guaranteed to spark a love of reading!


The four chapter books in Sally Rippin’s new School of Monsters series are a marvellous treat for children just starting their reading journey. Each is composed of short, easy sentences with bold, brightly coloured words to aid word recognition, a playful Dr Seuss-type rhyme, and energetic, cartoon-like illustrations guaranteed to motivate any beginner reader!

Within these pages, delightful madcap monsters engage in riotous school adventures that explore themes of diversity, friendship and sharing: Mary’s pet with the voracious appetite visits the school; Hairy Sam figures out a popular (but unusual) way to clean up his bread and jam mess; Pete’s extraordinarily big feet save the day; and Deb and Dot’s ingenious plot wins friends for both of them.

Each chapter book ends with tips for parents keen to help with reading and a wonderful step-by-step drawing activity. Best known for Billie B. Brown, Hey Jack! and the Polly and Buster series, Sally Rippin writes stories children love – and these will be no exception. Highly recommended for ages 5+.
