Synopsis

The Beast in My Belly by Grzegorz Kasdepke

There's A Beast in My Belly is a humorous, yet probing, story about a little girl and all of the mysterious stuff that goes on inside of her and all of the feelings she has. Some of these are uneasy and dark, of course. By discovering a beast in her belly, she cleverly relies on humor to explore her fears, both on her own and with others. This story is told by a master storyteller, whose every word is brought to life by the expressive charm and humor of the illustrations. Grzegorz Kasdepke is one of the most popular and highly awarded contemporary Polish writers for children and the author of more than thirty titles for young readers. Tomasz Kozlowski is a highly talented and well regarded Polish illustrator and graphic designer.

Reviews

An amusing take on a universal human experience, one that should strike giggling chords among its readers. -- Kirkus Reviews Thanks to fabulously discerning, award-winning indie press Enchanted Lion Books, prolific Polish author Grzegorz Kasdepke makes a delightfully whimsical Stateside debut-in-translation. Artist Tomek Kozlowski charms Kasdepke's playfully beastly tale with ingenuity (he turns an illustration on its side to show the impossible is possible), movement (he uses double images to capture separate conversations with a squirrel and birds in a single sentence), and so much humor (you'll have to giggle over all that for yourself). -- Smithsonian Book Dragon
