Above: my favourite, probably because I am very fond of pigs and because I like the colour palette. Actually, it's because I think I succeeded in making the Long Legged Underbed Pig look slightly annoyed by the little Aunt-eater running along its back. I wouldn't want my lunch interrupted, either.
Above: The Quarking Duck. Before I received the author's descriptions, I had thought that the monsters would resemble alien creatures, or at least something from recent films and cartoons with 'monster' in the title. Instead, Macinnis has concentrated on variations on the familiar, possibly to reassure his young readers that monsters aren't that scary after all. As a result, I am not sure that my pictures look like monsters. Perhaps that alien element was meant to come from me? Maybe that's why I couldn't help making the "trained shoe-lace monster" (not described beyond that) look a bit more strange.
Above: The Nose Ghoul, which I am least happy with. The monsters are not meant to be 'in-situ', but rather in a "static pose" with optional props. In this case, the fact that he is actually meant to be inside a person's nose gets lost. Perhaps another entrant came up with a better solution.
