Written by Eleanor to engage readers with Sensory difficulties and launched recently to coincide with World Autism Awareness Month

Rhyming Words and Alliteration:

The book is full of fun repetition and rhyming words to make the language come alive and children will delight in joining in with the rhyming patterns again and again. Helps to promote morphemical learning which is of importance to all young children, particularly for children with additional needs.

The alliteration, lyrical phrasing and sensory flow of the words also feed into the musical learning ability of children. A learning ability which is often a great strength in children with additional needs helping them to engage with and understand the world around them.

Stimulates Senses:

Each colour page is produced on Silk paper stock to enhance the texture of the paper. The vibrant illustrations and playful layout throughout the book enhance visual learning, a style of learning fundamental for all young children and in particular children with additional needs. Children are also encouraged to listen to the murmur grumble mumble of Popper Monster’s hungry belly throughout the book allowing them to connect the sensations and sounds that their own tummies make when they experience hunger.


The playful interaction between the reader and Popper Monster as they ask what colour will be eaten next allows children to engage in the world of imaginative play, an area universally loved by all children. Often an area that children with additional needs, particularly those on the Autism Spectrum can find difficult. 

About the Author

The book was first published in 2022. Written by Irish Primary School teacher Eleanor Geoghegan in her home in Kilkenny city, the inspiration behind writing the book came from her two autistic children.

Eleanor wanted to dedicate a moment in time to them while also providing a fun and engaging way for all children, including children with additional needs to learn first concepts and new ideas. Beautifully illustrated by talented French illustrator Helena Crevel who brought
Eleanor’s vision of Popper Monster perfectly to life on each of the 36 full colour pages.

Beginning in this first Popper Monster book where the colours of the rainbow are for lunch. The Popper Monster is a unique and loveable character who uses a magic stick to invent silly and funny monster foods to fill a grumbling, mumbling, monster belly.

Eleanor knew through her own experience that lots of repetition and rhyming patterns would help children learn and she sought to create a sensory flow in thelanguage of the book that would enhance their engagement. She also wanted to write a book that adults would enjoy sharing and retelling over and over again with their children.
