Format: Hardcover
What can i say about this book that will do it justice? It really needs to be read (aloud) to be appreciated, (not an overstatement!)

This is a fantastic storybook for children, boys and girls alike, made irresistible by the quirky, cute illustrations and the beautifully written ryhmes.

As a children's librarian in a large library I am familiar with all the new storybooks for children. It is my responsibility to co-ordiante and run children's storytime sessions, and this book is always a favourite. Children's enjoyment of this book tends to increase the more familiar they become with the characters and ryhmes, from the mouse, cow and whale, to the adorable ravenous beast himself.

I would only recommend this book for children over the age of three (although under three's may enjoy the pictures), as there are over thirty pages. Each page, though, has a rhyme about a VERY hungry animal listing the many unusual and wonderful things they could eat (because they are SO hungry!!)

This book would make a fantastic bedtime story, and is a great book for a child to keep and treasure over time, proving charming, captivating and humourous for both children and adults alike!!!

A colourful fun book, great illustrations....my 4 year old loves it. The ravenous beast is HUNGRY; HUNGRY, HUNGRY.... but the other animals claim to be even hungrier. My son is swept along with the story shouting HUNGRY!!!! as we go.
Would recommend this book for all kids aged 3 to 6.

Format: Paperback
My son has never tired of this book.Niamh Sharkey's art work is very appealing to a young child and the different meals that each animal consumes are fantastical to us but make perfect sense to a 3 year old. It's a great read for stimulating a childs imagination and I can whole heartedly recommend this book...enjoy.

Format: Board book
A child's story with a slightly sinister twist (the ravenous beast eats lots of other hungry animals, but in a very off-camera and not upsetting way). Ideal to be read aloud: lots of different characters allows lots of different voices to be used. Illustrations are uncluttered and allow our little one to tell the story without being able to read the words.

This is an amzingly clever book. The words are special and there is good repetition. My little boy has watched the dvd on continuous play for a fortnight now!!! Money well spent :)

Format: Paperback
My 2 yr old loves this - she knows all the names of the animals, and all their sayings, and shouts out for "Rabenus Beet" every story time!
Great fun. The DVD is quite a giggle too, and gets demanded again and again.

Bought this book for 4 year old grandson. It's a nice entertaining book that helps associate the words on the page with the scenes on the dvd
