Here the Carlson kids are a prime example why kids would be brilliant in any monster-related crisis, because while adults would be reduced to puddles, the nippers would just make friends with something that's bright red and has huge fangs. When the Carlson family relocate from Australia to Britain, kids Eddie and Angela take the monsters' unexpected presence in their stride. Although, to be fair, Australia is home to some pretty awful creatures, so Norman really isn't that frightening in comparison. On top of that, it's surely impossible to be scared of a weird looking beast called Norman, isn't it?

What would you do if you moved from Australia to England, only to find that three humorous, if mildly irritating, monsters were living in your basement? As a 10-year-old boy, Eddie takes the sensible decision of not telling his parents and hoping that they simply don't notice. Needless to say, this goes wrong pretty quickly. "I want to scream, but I'm too lazy," says Eddie's laconic teenage sister, when confronted with the sight of a monster with eyes on stalks. This is throwaway fun, featuring monsters that look like they took the wrong turning at Sesame Street.
