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.
