Chris Judge’s delightful Beast is back for a fresh adventure and this time he has a new friend!  The Beast loves snow but, when he climbs down from his hilltop to the village on a snowy day, he finds everything is topsy turvy. All the villagers’ tools have been stolen! How will they set up the festival they had planned. Following giant tracks in the snow, the Beast is soon in pursuit of the unlikely criminal! Chris Judge’s shaggy, gentle natured Beast continues to delight.

The Snow Beast Press Reviews

Judge gives readers a tale filled with wit and ending with a folky twist. The vibrant illustrations and comic-book-style layout and transitions bring movement, depth, and whimsy. A great read-aloud for wintertime story hours and cozy nights at home with the little ones. Kirkus Reviews

Reviews for Lonely Beast

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
