A Tale of Two Beasts

By Fiona Roberton

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

A funny story about seeing the world from a different viewpoint.

There are two sides to every story.

A little girl finds a strange beast in the woods and takes it home as a pet. She feeds it, shows it off to her friends and gives it a hat. But that night it escapes. Then the beast tells the story of being kidnapped by the girl, who forcefed it squirrel food, scared it with a group of beasts and wrapped it in wool. Can the two beasts resolve their differences?

An eye-opening story that makes you look at things from a different perspective.

'Roberton's premise is as sublime as it is simple, with a subtle message. [...] Totally delightful.' - Kirkus Reviews

Biographical Notes

Fiona Roberton was born in Oxford and studied art and design in London and New York. She has kept the wolf from the door for a number of years by working as a designer, but has since befriended the wolf, and has it to tea on Tuesdays. Sometimes they go out. Her previous book, Wanted: The Perfect Pet, was inspired by her love of dogs, ducks and disguises.
