The Fearsome Beastie
I am a member of The Baby Website and they recently sent me The Fearsome Beastie by Giles Paley-Phillips to review.
The Fearsome Beastie is a great read with fantastic illustrations and is written in rhyme which makes it really easy to read. I found the style was very similar to Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes as you find yourself reading faster when you reach a scary bit which adds to the excitement. The twist at the end is very cleverly done, my sons thought it was hilarious! The illustrations in the book are excellent, we spent ages looking at all the different pictures and Gabriele Antonini (the illustrator) has really captured the fear on the children's faces. This is a brilliant book and we have read it at least once a day, usually more, since we received it.
