The Monster Twins Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

I'm thrilled to have The Monster Twins Blog Tour stopping by today! This tour is sponsored by The Monster Twins and hosted by The Children's Book Review...

Written by Robert and Karen Hanvik 
Illustrated by Ella Ransom 

Bella and Bertie are twins, but they don’t know that, or each other. Separated while babies by bad law, they grew up 6000 miles apart, in Singapore and London. Follow the twins as they discover their shared past and do their best to make a better future for themselves, their families, and others like them. 

The Monster Twins is a sweet picture book about families, written by a family, with a timely message. Readers will join twin monsters Bella and Bertie, who were separated at birth by an awful law, as they and all their parents go on an unforgettable journey full of discovery, courage, and love. 

Robert and Karen Hanvik’s engaging story will pull readers in with its imagination, thoughtful story, and colorful characters. Kids will latch on to Bella and Bertie’s touching story and relatable tales of feeling different. Ella Ransom wonderfully brings the story to life with fun, colorful scenes that highlight the sights of Singapore and London.  

With a beautiful and important message, charming characters, and fun illustrations, The Monster Twins is a delight!

The Monster Twins is the first book Karen has designed and illustrated, although she has stretched her creative muscles for many years.

Karen’s and Robert’s daughter Ella has enjoyed drawing monsters for as long as she can remember, starting when she was just six years old. More recently, she has added a deep interest in architectural drawings large and small, which inspired her to include a number of iconic buildings in The Monster Twins.
