Stiucai Stiugtha (The Ravenous Beast) by Niamh Sharkey

The ravenous beast is hungry; in fact, he's ravenous! 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! Niamh Sharkey's unmistakable style and stylish palette create a beautiful book that's almost good enough to eat!


With a dazzling array of munchies on the menu, your baby will be giggling from start to finish. Great illustrations too. Baby & You
