Publisher Comments:

Be kind to your pets! Thats the message of Love the Beastie.  Gross, outrageous, but pure fun in a book, Love the Beastie is a pull and poke, spin and play, and cuddle and kiss Valentine for kids and especially kids with pets.

Meet Paul and Judy. And meet their pet, Beastie. Paul and Judy used to be so mean to Beastie. They pulled Beasties hair, tickled Beastie's feet. So, Beastie feastied! Good thing Paul and Judy learned their lesson (stuck inside the belly of the Beastie).

Written and illustrated by Henrik Drescher, Love the Beastie picks up where his irresistibly offbeat Pat the Beastie left off. Now Paul and Judy really are best friends with Beastie, and treat him with the love and respect he deserves. They go to the playground and spin on the carousel—dont throw up! Brush Beasties gunky teeth (Gross!), and help Beastie play dress-up (ha, look at Beasties funny clothes). Then, at the end of a long day, they all cuddle together in bed. Ahhh.

So what if Beasties kisses are scratchy or Beastie farts in his sleep. That doesnt mean a thing when you love someone.

Review:

"Paul and Judy used to do 'naughty things' to their best friend, Beastie, who resembles a hairy green alligator. The evidence: a mini-booklet that briefly recaps scenes from the friends' first outing, Pat the Beastie (1993). To teach them a lesson, Beastie swallows them and then spits them out — a pull-tab sends the two children careening out along Beastie's slippery, red tongue. Now all is forgiven: Beastie, Paul, and Judy ride the carousel until they're dizzy, brush Beastie's 'gunky' teeth, play dress up, and curl up together in bed (readers can tuck them in with a pink cloth blanket). With gentle gross-out humor, Drescher delivers an off-kilter reminder about being gentle with those we love. Agent: Red Fox Literary. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
