Beasts on the Lawn is a collection of Edwardian short stories by Saki (H. H. Munro) recycled and restaged in a modern-day gated community for the far-too-wealthy-for-their-own-good. The tales are woven together by the character of Clovis, a security guard. She recalls the events of strange days and long nights. The five stories are: "Tobermory", "The Interlopers", "Sredni Vashtar", and "Gabriel Ernest and Mrs Packletide's Tiger".
