Synopsis

The Ravenous Beast by Niamh Sharkey

This is a fantastic picture book feast - brought to life with an animated DVD! The ravenous beast is hungry, hungry, hungry. But is he the hungriest animal of all? 'Nonsense smonsense,' scoff the other animals, and 'Hokum Pokum!' But they want to watch out or the ravenous beast might just gobble 'em up and swallow 'em down! Walker Books have collaborated with King Rollo Films to create this gently animated DVD packaged together with the classic picture book. Read by Kevin Whately ( Inspector Morse , Peak Practice ), with specially composed music, this is an innovative combination that will delight and entertain young viewers again and again. Fun and engaging, this innovative set will help develop reading skills and is ideal for sharing at home or in the classroom.
