'Witty and entertaining' Sunday Times Children's Books of the Year 2020 'A devilishly delicious delight' iNews Children's Books to look out for for Christmas 2020 The book that bites back is back! In the second beastly book from the most distinctive new voice in middle grade fict...ion, revenge is a dish best served with a surprise ... Once upon a very badly behaved time, 511-year-old Ebenezer kept a beast in his attic. He would feed the beast all manner of objects and creatures (RIP Patrick the Parrot) and in return the beast would vomit him up expensive presents. But then The Bethany arrived ... 10-year-old notorious prankster Bethany took on the beast - and now, along with their new feathery friend Claudette, she's determined that she and Ebenezer are going to DE-BEAST their lives and Do Good. But Bethany finds that being a notorious prankster makes it hard to get taken on for voluntary work. And Ebenezer is secretly missing the beast's vomity gifts. And neither of them are all that sure what 'good people' do anyway ... Then there's Claudette, who's not been feeling herself recently. Has she eaten something that has DISAGREED with her? But they'd better ALL watch out. Because you don't get rid of the beast that easily. And I'm feeling peckish ... The Beast and the Bethany has all the classic macabre humour of Roald Dahl with the warmth and charm of Despicable Me, finished off with a gleeful bite of Little Shop of Horrors!Read more
