The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 7-12 Reading Age 7 Clever telling keeps this story spooky and surprising. Chapter one and Robbie and Gareth are local celebrities being interviewed by local TV. But why? A story of ghostly goings on in the local woods, bravery plus a bit of playground humiliation is revealed leading up to a surprise twist in the tale as we learn just what was making those creepy night-time howling noises and why the boys are in the spotlight. Part of Barrington Stoke’s 4U2Read series, this has been edited to a reading age of seven, but the boys’ adventure makes for really satisfying reading for children aged 8 to 12, and they are a very likeable, believable couple of rascals. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Beast by Michaela Morgan

A fun caper from a popular author, with brilliant illustrations from the master of creepy black-and-white inky doodles, Chris Mould.

When Robbie and Gaz hear a strange howling sound in the woods behind Robbie's house, they decide it's their chance to take a photo of a big cat and make a fortune selling it to the papers. Nothing quite goes according to plan, but Robbie and Gaz end up famous for entirely different reasons.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
