WHO'S AFRAID OF THE FEROCIOUS BEAST?
Not the clever little piglet the beast caught for lunch! The on-the-ball oinker convinces the pudgy beast he's about to burst out of his polka-dot hide and puts him on a diet quaranteed to take away anyone's apetite. Even his would-be meal finally takes pity on the poor beast -- but can the ingenious piglet save his own hide by coming up with something the beast will din as yummy as pork?
In The Ferocious Beast with the Polka-Dot Hide, the celebrateed mother-and-son team of Betty and Michael Paraskevas has created a beguiling tale and delightful characters tastier than a ham sandwich.
The Ferocious Beast and his piglet friend, Hamilton, are now starring in Maggie and the Ferocious Beast on Nickelodeon.

PreSchool-Grade 2?A ferocious and famished polka-dot beast will eat anything and everything until a piglet warns him that his prized hide is about to burst. The piglet even volunteers to be a nutrition coach. It is a struggle, but the once-rotund monster becomes svelte and healthy. A funny idea falls flat due to a sophomoric, awkward narration. The text is composed of forced, choppy rhymes. Bright, multicolored double-page spreads featuring the lip-smacking, pop-eyed beast are playful and appealing, but unspectacular. They are definitely not enough to compensate for the feeble text.?Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
