Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Two of the best-loved creators of children's books have collaborated on this utterly charming picture book. Using repetition, color progression, and rhymes, Bill Martin, Jr. (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?) and Steven Kellogg (A-Hunting We Will Go!) conjure up a story that will beguile any small reader in search of a thrill. Comical, cartoonish illustrations depict shadowy figures and deep, rich colors, leading up to the spooky surprise ending. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A cute and educational book!
The authors help children to learn colors as they tell the story; this is well-integrated into the book. "Beasty" is an effective mix of suspense and humor, although the surprise ending doesn't quite work; some readers might notice that the authors seem to violate the laws of science to achieve the surprise! Still, a fun book.
This has become a favorite, and the build up to the "And Grabs Him!" page is a nightly family ritual filled with giggles from Mom, Dad AND our daughter! Love it! We will be in our twilight years looking back fondly at this book!
