Beast has found a tasty dinner, and he’s written to all his friends to invite them to a feast. Unfortunately, Dinner is a child who very much does not want to be eaten.

As Beast’s friends send their instructions for cooking Dinner, is there any way Dinner can convince Beast to change his menu? A vibrant and charming interactive book with hilarious letters to open.

Review new 2021

One day Beast caught something tasty for his dinner, a little boy, who he called ‘Dinner’. He was so excited about eating the little boy that he decided it would be perfect to share him with his friends, so he wrote to them inviting them to his dinner party.

Each of Beast’s friends wrote back with certain demands which ‘Dinner’ helped out with. One friend wanted his portion to be salty so ‘Dinner’ talked Beast into going for a swim in the ocean. Another friend wanted his share to be slimy, so ‘Dinner’ suggested they go to the swamp.

Over the next few days, Beast realised that he was having a lot of fun with ‘Dinner’ and that he didn’t want to eat him anymore, but his friends were coming and he didn’t know what to do as they would be angry if he didn’t serve ‘Dinner’ to them.

Beast Feast is an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable children’s book about a Beast and his upcoming feast, in which he intends to serve up a little boy. However, the little boy is very crafty and makes the beast become his friend.

The book has amazing, colourful illustrations throughout that capture the story perfectly and also includes letters to open from Beasts friends.

The story is beautifully told and although it might feature a beast wanting to eat a small child there is nothing in the book to be afraid of. I can see this being a book that children want to read over and over as well as giggle along with.

Beast Feast would make a great read for the upcoming Halloween, although it is a book that will be enjoyed at any time of the year.
