Editorial Reviews

Monsieur Racine was content to live a quiet life of retirement. He tended to his pear tree and kept to himself. One morning, however, he finds all but one of his pears has been eaten and a mysterious set of footprints is all that remain. Performed with a comical energy from actor Charles Duval, The Beast of Monsieur Racine is the humorous story of an unlikely partnership and an old man’s ability to change his curmudgeonly ways. Children are sure to love the fun performance - complete with musical accompaniment - of this classic from author and illustrator, Tomi Ungerer.
