Nothing is quite as it seems in this book. Seven stories from around the world introduce remarkable animals and extraordinary people, among them an inquisitive monkey, a clever farmer and an unusual butterfly. Each tale has the colour and vigour of the countries and cultures they represent.

For thirty years Hugh Lupton has been a central figure in the British storytelling revival.
Niamh Sharkey is the illustrator of many award-winning children's books. When looking for inspiration for a new picture book, she turned to her old notebooks and sketches. "I came across a 1994 painting, RAVENOUS MONSTERS, featuring hungry, hungry animals. After much playing around with the idea, THE RAVENOUS BEAST was born." Niamh Sharkey lives in Dublin, Ireland.
Where lies your fortune--at home or in a dream? What does a blind man see? Who best knows the innermost soul and when it will be displayed? In collected stories from Africa, the Americas, and Europe, these questions and more are explored. Hugh Lupton's storytelling shines throughout this recording. He embellishes each story with distinctive voices--the fox who cajoles and encourages the healing process, the monkey who whines his way straight to the top, the disbelieving and scornful brother-in-law. Lupton's storyteller's cadence leaves time for imagination and enjoyment. This is one time when it is important to create the scenes orally as the book's stylized illustrations detract from stories' richness.
