The Snow Beast by Chris Judge
Beast has been robbed! And so has the whole village. Without tools the villagers can't put on their legendary Winter Festival, so Beast sets off to solve the mystery. Discovering that a stranded Snow Beast is behind the robbery, Beast has to decide whether to help this odd-looking stranger.

'Judge gives readers a tale filled with wit and ending with a folky twist. The vibrant illustrations and comic-book-style layout and transitions bring movement, depth, and whimsy. A great read-aloud for wintertime story hours and cozy nights at home with the little ones.' Kirkus Reviews
Reviews for Lonely Beast
'An irresistible debut - as fresh and original as they come. Top pick!' - The Bookseller
`The Lonely Beast is illustrated in such a diverse way that it makes it totally worth buying without even reading the story! (But) the story is equally brilliant. A quirky and a good value read.' - EYE
`It's the illustrations that really make this special . . . I'm looking forward to seeing more from Chris Judge in the future.' - The Bookbag
