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
