“‘What if there is a monster under the table?’ said Jumpy Jack. ‘What if there is a monster with long thin feet that jumps out from under the table and frightens me so much I nearly faint?’  
‘Ho ho ho,’ said Googily. ‘Now you really have gone too far.’”

Love your collection (and luckily it is quite different from mine), especially Alberto Cerriteno and Allan Ahlberg.
