The Ravenous Beast

The Ravenous Beast is hungry, hungry. But is he the hungriest beast of all? “Nonsense smonsense,” scoff the other animals! “Hokum pokum!” But if they don’t watch out, the Ravenous Beast might just gobble ‘em up and swallow ‘em down! In this rollicking picture book classic, Niamh Sharkey’s unmistakable style and bold palette create a treat that’s almost good enough to eat!
