$25.00 Inc GST
The Beaver and the Beasts is a hilarious tale about a cheeky little beaver who crashes a secret meeting of the world’s notorious beasts. The beasts have travelled thousands of miles to converge for this important meeting: there’s the minotaur from Greece, trolls from France, a Yeti from Mt Everest and a werewolf from London. Their leader – the Loch Ness Monster – is calling an international emergency; children across the world don’t believe in them any more!
But before they tackle the crisis, they have a bigger problem on their hands in the form of a cheeky little beaver.
A story about facing your fears and keeping your sense of wonder, The Beaver and the Beasts is Patrick Guest’s first book with his son Noah.
About the Author: Patrick Guest was raised in the Melbourne beachside suburb of Seaford. He works as a Physiotherapist by day and a best-selling children’s author by night. Patrick received huge acclaim for his story The Second Sky, illustrated by Jonathan Bentley; it was shortlisted for the 2018 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award. Likewise, Patrick’s fourth title, The Dress-Up Box, illustrated by Nathaniel Eckstrom, has established itself as a much-loved Australian classic, and was shortlisted for the 2019 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award. His 2020 lockdown-inspired Windows was shortlisted for an ABIA, screened on the ABC, and adopted as a beacon of hope by families and schools around the world.
The Beaver and the Beasts is a father-son collaboration between Patrick and his son, Noah Guest. According to his dad, Noah’s first word was: ‘Story?’ He’s been collecting stories ever since – from Donaldson to Dahl, Tolkien to the Duffer Brothers – and now he’s creating his own stories. Like many of his characters, Noah is a master at rising above adversity. His favourite weapons are wisecracks, a wild imagination and a keen eye for the ridiculous.
