Another Good Review for Fearsome Beastie

“Well, The Fearsome Beastie. This book started off a bit scary but it rhymed well (so important) and I’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 out…

…To be honest…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 importantly…….my six year old son thought it was FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  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!”  - Becky Goddard-Hill
