Not only did I purchase Penny Harter’s newest children’s book The Beastie Book, An Alphabestiary to give as a gift, but I also bought one for myself! That’s how special I found this delightful flight into the fanciful world of Penny Harter’s enchanting beastie creations!
The Beastie Book is a 56-page, hardcover, full-color book published by Shenanigan Books and measures approximately 11-1/4″ high by 8-3/4 ” wide.
I was immediately engaged by Penny’s poetic portrayal of each imaginary beastie, and I know readers young, old, and in-between will be as thoroughly delighted by her beasties as I was.
There’s one beastie for each letter of the alphabet. You and your young ones will become acquainted with such creatures as Floatkin and his soap bubble rides, Iffenproof who lives on the moon, and picnic-loving Rumpulus with his insatiable appetite.
Penny’s beasties come to life through the illustrative talent of Alexandra Miller, who completely and superbly captures the essence of each character.
If you’re thinking, “Gosh, this would be such a unique and special book for my little (son or daughter, niece of nephew, grandchild, neighbor child)” then please don’t hesitate in introducing that special child you have in mind to the captivating antics of Penny Harter’s beasties.
