The Baby Beast

By Chris Judge

The Beast is back, and this time he’s having a baby! The fourth in award-winning Chris Judge's critically acclaimed Beast series.

When an egg arrives on his doorstep, Beast doesn’t quite know what to do: feed it? Take it for a nice long walk? Drop it? Doctor Yoko tells him he must keep it warm and just wait, but exactly what he’s waiting for is a mystery to the Beast… Side-splitting humour from award-winning Chris Judge: adults will recognise (some of) Beast’s first-time child-care mistakes, while children laugh out loud. This is the fourth in the award-winning Beast series, following The Lonely Beast, The Brave Beast and The Snow Beast. Praise for The Lonely Beast: 'Judge tells a familiar tale but illustrates it with uncommon style and verve.' New York Times

  • Parents and children alike will enjoy watching the Beast try to figure out parenthood.

  • The first in the series, The Lonely Beast, won the Irish Children's Book of the Year 2011, and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2012.
