Waterstones Says

The rollicking sequel to the bestselling The Beast and the Bethany reunites our prankster heroine with the ancient Ebenezer and feathery Claudette for more marvellously macabre misadventures and gleefully gothic goings-on.

The book that bites back is back! In the second beastly book from the most distinctive new voice in middle grade fiction, revenge is a dish best served with a surprise ...

Once upon a very badly behaved time, 511-year-old Ebenezer kept a beast in his attic. He would feed the beast all manner of objects and creatures and in return the beast would vomit him up expensive presents. But then the Bethany arrived ...

Now notorious prankster Bethany, along with her new feathery friend Claudette, is determined that she and Ebenezer are going to de-beast their lives and Do Good. But Bethany finds that being a notorious prankster makes it hard to get taken on for voluntary work. And Ebenezer is secretly missing the beast's vomity gifts. And neither of them are all that sure what 'good people' do anyway ...

Then there's Claudette, who's not been feeling herself recently. Has she eaten something that has disagreed with her?

The Beast and the Bethany: Revenge of the Beast has all the classic macabre humour of Roald Dahl with the warmth and charm of Despicable Me, finished off with a gleeful bite of Little Shop of Horrors!
