Beast Feast

Kane Miller. Mar. 2020. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781684640058.
K-Gr 4–Beast catches a small child and thinks the child looks very tasty; he even names the child “Dinner.” Beast invites his beastly friends to a feast where Dinner is to be served as the main course. Beast sends out and receives letters from his friends with their preferences on how Dinner should be served. One unique feature of this book is the addition of letters that readers can open themselves. Some letters pop off the page and further encourage reader interaction. Another fun feature is the eerie recipes included in the front and back of the book. The relationship between the human and beast is developed seamlessly through the narrative and imagery, and there is a considerable amount of conflict and suspense as the story unwinds. The illustrations add fun supporting details to the text, and the typeface of the narrative further adds to the spooky feel.
VERDICT A comical read with many delightfully creepy mentions, this tale captures the wonder of developing unique friendships.
