Billy and Fatcat are taking a walk through the woods when they stumble across a nasty beast who has hatched an evil plan. He has captured a fox, a hedgehog, 2 mice and 3 super cute bunnies and he plans to boil them up in to soup.
Quick-thinking Billy soon has the Beast in a tizz but, armed with only the items she has stashed in her amazing afro, can she save the animals from the soup before it is too late?
We love this book. It has all the right ingredients for a great children’s story – a feisty female protagonist, a feline sidekick, a scary monster and a whole host of adorable woodland animals!
It’s beautifully written and the eye-catching illustrations really enhance the story. Billy and Fatcat are great little characters and you find yourself really cheering them on. The Beast is just the right mix of scary and stupid which makes him slightly threatening but not enough to actually frighten a toddler.
We weren’t aware of Nadia Shireen prior to purchasing this book but we’ll definitely be checking out her other titles!
