The Brave Beast

Publisher: Andersen Press

The Beast is enjoying a lovely bit of peace and quiet when terrified villagers from a nearby island beg for his help in finding the source of a horrifying howling which they are certain comes from some unspeakably fierce and dangerous monster.

Despite his fears, the Beast bravely sets off on a challenging quest into uncharted territory, risking life and limb to save the village. What he finds teaches both him and the villagers that things are often not as scary as they might seem. 

Simple text and superbly naive illustrations add charm, magic and subtle humour to this tale of courage, kindness and inclusivity. Bold use of colour and plenty of scope for interaction will make this a firm favourite with both adults and children.
