So, without further ado let’s get into today’s tour for The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggitt-Phillips
Publisher: Egmont Books
Genres: Middle Grade
Publication Date: 1st October 2020
“Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things (including performing monkeys, his pet cat and the occasional cactus) and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer, as well as potions which keep him young and beautiful. But the beast grows ever greedier, and soon only a nice, juicy child will do. So when Ebenezer encounters orphan Bethany, it seems like (everlasting) life will go on as normal. But Bethany is not your average orphan . . .“
My Thoughts & Review
The Beast and the Bethany was definitely an entertaining read, full of funny and silly moments. The book consists of a small cast of characters that I thought were great. Now how could you not like a 511 year old man called Ebenezer Tweezer, an orphan called Bethany and a beast that can give you anything you want. Well to find out more you’ll just have to read the book yourself to find out!!!!
Oh, an you’ll definitely love the illustrations. My proof copy didn’t have all the illustrations but the ones that were included looked great and I can’t wait to see the finished copy.
I loved reading this book and I’m now reading it for the second time with my 5 year old nephew who is loving it so far. We won’t be getting through it quite as fast as I did the first time but that doesn’t matter, as I get to enjoy it for the second time at a slower pace.
Can’t wait to see what the next book has in store for us. Definitely a middle grade that can and will be enjoyed by all ages!!!
