The Fearsome Beastie is searching for something to eat,
and children are at the top of the menu.
Will they be fooled by his clever tricks
or can Pete's Granny save the day?
This is a gorgeous little book! Written in rhymes, with perfect, glossy illustrations (courtesy of Gabriele Antonini) it is sure to keep the reader (however young or old!) captivated.
To me, it is like a modern day 'Little Red Riding Hood'. It is perfect for little children (perhaps 3-7). There are plenty of things to talk about whilst reading this, if you are reading it to your child. The expressions on the children's faces, for instance, provokes conversation of why they are feeling scared, where they could hide from the 'Fearsome Beastie' etc. Lots of opportunities come with this beautifully told story.
However young or old, I think anyone would enjoy this. I give it a rating of 5/5. :)
