Big Brave Brian is the bravest man in the world. His house is filled with hideous beasts: disgusting, slimy bog monsters, fearsome giants, and all manner of mysterious things that go bump in the night. But there is one thing that Brian is terrified of, and it’s in his bedroom, waiting for him to come in . . . Brian’s collection of wonderfully grotesque creatures appeals to children's sense of fun, and his amusing, surprising fear of cleaning his room provides the perfect starting point to discuss a young child’s own fears and worries.

M. P. Robertson was born in Parsons Green, London. He studied Graphic Design at Hounslow Borough College, where he discovered a love for illustrated books. After leaving Hounslow he spent a year drawing in museums, cathedrals and on the underground before specialising in illustration at Kingston Polytechnic. Among the influences on his style are Mervyn Peake, Heath Robinson and Odile Redon. He believes that more than merely decorating a book, illustration should be integral to the narrative.
