Ravenous little readers will eat up this deliciously illustrated read-aloud and be hungry, hungry, hungry for more! The ravenous beast is hungry; he's hungry, hungry, hungry. But is he the hungriest animal of all? "Nonsense smonsense", scoff the other animals, and "Hokum Pokum!" But they want to watch out or the ravenous beast might just gobble 'em up and swallow 'em down! Niamh Sharkey's unmistakable style and stylish palette create a beautiful book that's almost good enough to eat.
