Synopsis: The creator of A Moon in My Teacup uses her richly colored, haunting illustrations to help retell the old English tale about the spunky Birdie, who matches wits with the mischievous, shape-shifting trickster, Brindlebeast. Tour.

From Booklist: Ages 5-7. Riggio smoothly retells a traditional fairy tale that takes place on Allhallows Eve in which a cheerful old woman named Birdie encounters the magical, form-changing Brindlebeast. On this spooky night, Birdie happens on a cast-iron kettle filled with gold coins, and, pleased with her good fortune, she drags it home. But as she walks, she finds the kettle mysteriously changing shape, first into a barrel of apples and then into a pumpkin. Undisturbed, she continues home, whereupon the pumpkin metamorphoses into the fiery, dragonlike Brindlebeast. Here, Riggio's dramatic oil paintings may be downright scary for the youngest child, but the artwork and the story are ultimately reassuring. Birdie is unafraid of the dreaded monster or of telling him so. As she turns her back on him, the Brindlebeast reveals himself as a small, humble man. Together they share dinner and conversation, and in the years to come, a friendship. Through handsome artwork and quality storytelling, Riggio has created an atmospheric holiday tale.
