'Reads like a modern classic. Sharp, funny, original – I thought this was brilliant' – Sam Copeland, author of the bestselling Charlie Changes into a Chicken

'What a FEAST! A funny and (bone) cracking good read’ – Michelle Harrison, bestselling author of A Pinch of Magic

Major film deal announced with Warner Brothers and Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts producer, David Heyman.

The most exciting new children's book of 2020 and a modern classic in the making. The Beast and the Bethany has all the classic macabre humour of Roald Dahl with the warmth and charm of Despicable Me, finished off with a gleeful bite of Little Shop of Horrors! This book should be on every little monster's birthday and Christmas list.


Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things (including performing monkeys, his pet cat and the occasional cactus) and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer, as well as potions which keep him young and beautiful. But the beast grows ever greedier, and soon only a nice, juicy child will do. So when Ebenezer encounters orphan Bethany, it seems like (everlasting) life will go on as normal. But Bethany is not your average orphan . . .
