The most exciting new children's audiobook of 2020 and a modern classic in the making.
Ebenezer Tweezer is a youthful 511-year-old. He keeps a beast in the attic of his mansion, who he feeds all manner of things (including performing monkeys, his pet cat and the occasional cactus) and in return the beast vomits out presents for Ebenezer, as well as potions which keep him young and beautiful. But the beast grows ever greedier, and soon only a nice, juicy child will do.
So when Ebenezer encounters orphan Bethany, it seems like (everlasting) life will go on as normal. But Bethany is not your average orphan.

Better than I expected
Not the most inspiring headline is it?
Well, not to worry - I expected this to be a bit of a throw away read, I hadn’t got high hopes and I honestly don’t know why.
I listened in one sitting beginning to end and thoroughly enjoyed it. Eberneezer and Bethany are great characters who play off each other wonderfully - think Gru and Margo in Despicable Me and you aren’t far off.
Quick plot, no nonsense, action, peril and a sense of humour.
Great fun - and now the only disappointment is of myself for quite literally - judging a book by the cover.
I’m sure I read somewhere you shouldn’t do that, right?
