The Lovereading4Kids comment
How the Beast overcomes his loneliness is a touching story about friendship of all kinds. Despite his name, the Beast, and all other Beasts, are gentle creatures who love gardening and cake baking. The Beast travels across the world to share his friendship with all those he meets: he is loved for his gentleness and kindness. But still the beast is lonely; what he wants most is to be friends with another Beast. Glorious illustrations of the Beast as he makes friends all over the world bring this story vividly to life.

'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
