From former Irish Children's Laureate Niamh Sharkey and creator and executive producer of Disney Junior's animated preschool series Henry Hugglemonster, comes the comical tale of The Ravenous Beast, the hungriest creature of them all... or is he?

A comical tale of the Ravenous Beast who is hungry, hungry, hungry! But is he the hungriest animal of all? The other animals don't think so, but they want to watch out, or the ravenous beast might just gobble them up and swallow them down! Children will love the combination of Sharkey's alliterative rhyming text and bright expressive artwork introducing us to a comical cacophony of animal characters. Niamh's unmistakable style and stylish palette create a beautiful book that's almost good enough to eat!
