Review:

This is a book not for the faint-hearted, so I wouldn't recommend it for kids with a more sensitive disposition. About a fearsome beastie that lives in a cave and comes out at night hunting for children, it has shades of the Three Little Pigs about it. After scoffing a few gullible children, he meets his end when a no-nonsense granny comes to the rescue with an axe, freeing the kids from his tummy and turning him into stew. Now, my daughter s only two years old and has been known to be a bit of a scaredy cat at times. She cowers at all manner of things, but shouts with glee in equal measure at others. In short, her scaredy quirks are unpredictable. What I think she won t like, she often loves with a passion. This book is one of them. As I read the words to her and showed her the dark picture of the menacing beastie, her eyes lit up. I think she quite liked him actually. She thought the idea of gran coming to the rescue absolutely hilarious and asked me to explain why HER Mar Mar doesn't make beastie stew. I guess it goes to show that with books and encouraging young kids to read, often anything goes. After all, what does mum know anyway? --/www.mothersalwaysright.com

Written in rhyme this is a perfect book for kids in reception as I found it helped to reinforce the structure of words. Boy and Fifi loved this story and we spent quite a while discussing what they would do if the Beastie came to get them. It has wonderful illustrations and is a joy to read, and I for one will never look at grannies in the same way again. Fabulous, we like, a lot! A Terrific little Picture Book - --Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

Really Enjoyed this, it's inspired me to do a picture book' --David Walliams
