Do you have your book in front of you on a nice hard flat surface? Good. If you run your fingers in from the binding on the left-hand side, you will find the Title of the book written in Braille. On the front cover of the book there is a picture of Bernard standing looking up at the monster who is standing on a little mound of earth. Bernard is wearing a pair of blue trousers, a green jumper with a red star on a yellow circle pattern on his chest, back and sleeve and white and red trainers. He has his hands in his pocket and is looking up at the monster, he doesn't look as if he is frightened at all, and he is even smiling a little. The monster, however, looks very fierce. He's not a very big monster, about the same height as Bernard but he is fat, purple and furry with nine large, sharp looking teeth!
