Magic Monsters are lively, mischievous creatures with magical powers — they are able to morph into different creatures, change shape, size and colour, and they can even become invisible. They have fun doing activities that kids enjoy doing, like dancing, swimming, and cycling.
This counting rhyme starts with ten monsters. Every time they do a different activity, one of them has a mishap and can’t continue. Each exit is accompanied by a comic sound effect — a perfect opportunity for some audience participation!
The number of monsters keeps reducing, and by the end of the rhyme, all the monsters seem to have disappeared …. “and then there were none”. Happily in this rhyme, no monsters were permanently harmed (unlike in the more violent traditional version), and (spoiler alert!!) they are all reunited at the end of the story.
