The Beasties by Jenny Nimmo

The first fantastic collaboration between Mother-Daughter dream team, Jenny Nimmo, creator of Charlie Bone, and Gwen Millward. On a starry, starry night Daisy hears a growl that makes her heart go pit-a-pat. It sounds like a story ...Every night a new tale drifts up to Daisy - tales of robbers, shipwrecks and lost princesses. Until one night everything goes very quiet. Daisy very slowly looks under the bed to find ...Three storytelling beasties! The Beasties is a lovingly crafted picture book about the power of imagination and the comfort of storytelling from one of the most successful families in children's literature. Jenny Nimmo is best known for her global sensation Charlie Bone, while Gwen Millward is an award-winning illustrator behind The Bog Baby.

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David Wynn Millward, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. At boarding school, reading was her way to overcome loneliness or boredom. However, she is aware that not everyone finds reading comes easily, and feels passionately that every child should have all the help they need, and access to as many books as they want.
