The Fearsome Beastie by Giles Paley-Phillips

  An interesting story about that bump in the night that scares kids to death.  Giles spin a tale about a beastie on the hill outside of town that comes looking for children to eat.  The kids all cry when he comes to they're home, but  beastie does too.  He tricks them into thinking he only wants to play, and when the kids come out of hiding he gobbles them all up, but not little Pete.  Pete runs to get his Gran who chops the beastie open with her ax freeing the children, and turns the beastie into beastie stew.  It's hilarious to see the pictures of an ax wielding granny and a pot of beastie stew in the end.  The story really is cool.  I read it with my boy here, and although he's nine, and long since left this kind of reading behind he thought it was funny too.  I liked it, and recommend it for anyone who has a gran, and is wanting a way to make the little ones feel better about sounds in the night.
