â€œWell, The Fearsome Beastie. This book started off a bit scary but it rhymed well (so important) and Iâ€™m used to story books, so I settled in my chair .
After scaring the children The Fearsome Beasite started to cry because he had no one to play with. Ahh, I thought just my cup of tea, children should include everyone not be put off because they look different. But NO! Irreverent author Giles Paley- Phillips pulls a fast one. This is a dark, scary tale after all. Beastie is wicked! Anyway along comes Granny to sort him outâ€¦
â€¦To be honestâ€¦I was a bit shocked by the old fashioned macabre quality of this tale. HOWEVER I adored the expressive illustrations, it rhymed and scanned beautifully and most importantlyâ€¦â€¦.my six year old son thought it was FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Â and as that is exactly who Giles is writing for and who matters. I think my son is certainly the best one to review this not me!â€Â -Â Becky Goddard-Hill
