The Beast and the Bethany

The Beast and the Bethany

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed The Twits, the Minpins & the Magic Finger, then you’ll love The Beast and the Bethany.

“Nostalgic Roald Dahl feelings are impossible to ignore in this snarky adventure where the adults are awful and there are lessons in humanity in every chapter. An insatiable beast, an everlasting Ebanezer who feeds him, and a child that breaks this partnership wide open. Great narration and a fantastic story!”

The Yankee Bookshop image Nichole, The Yankee Bookshop

Description

Lemony Snicket meets Roald Dahl in this riotously funny, deliciously macabre, and highly illustrated tale of a hungry beast, a vain immortal man, and a not-so-charming little girl who doesn’t know she’s about to be eaten.

Beauty comes at a price. And no one knows that better than Ebenezer Tweezer, who has stayed beautiful for 511 years. How, you may wonder? Ebenezer simply has to feed the beast in the attic of his mansion. In return for meals of performing monkeys, statues of Winston Churchill, and the occasional cactus, Ebenezer gets potions that keep him young and beautiful, as well as other presents.

But the beast grows ever greedier with each meal, and one day he announces that he’d like to eat a nice, juicy child next. Ebenezer has never done anything quite this terrible to hold onto his wonderful life. Still, he finds the absolutely snottiest, naughtiest, and most frankly unpleasant child he can and prepares to feed her to the beast.

The child, Bethany, may just be more than Ebenezer bargained for. She’s certainly a really rather rude houseguest, but Ebenezer still finds himself wishing she didn’t have to be gobbled up after all. Could it be Bethany is less meal-worthy and more…friend-worthy?
